SASKATOON — A study has found that rest stops during transportation had little to no effect on calves in good condition, says the researcher.
Dr. Karen Schwartzkopf-Genswein from the federal research station at Lethbridge said the difference between calves transported for 36 hours or 12 hours, with and without rest stops, was some fatigue.
She said this shows the impact on cattle is due to the transport itself.
“I was actually surprised that we didn’t see a difference,” she said in an interview after her presentation to the Saskatchewan Beef Industry Conference.
