Livestock company and meat producer Pali Group has informed us that they will no longer transport male goat-kids of only 7-10 days old to slaughterhouses. Their affiliated dairy-goat producers will now fatten their male kids for at least a couple of weeks on the farm. Once the male kids are transported they are stronger and a little less dependent on milk.
In the period of 2017-2020 Eyes on Animals investigated the welfare of goat-kids. In the popular TV-show Radar we informed consumers about the fate of many goat-kids: transport and slaughter shortly after birth (7-10 days). We are happy Pali Group is now no longer involved in this.
