The posters, three of which have been produced, are designed for display in slaughterhouses at the relevant processing points.
They cover stunning cattle with captive-bolt equipment; electrical stunning of sheep; and use of mechanical percussive devices for poultry. The poultry poster is also suitable for display on-farm, since the type of equipment involved can be used as an emergency culling tool.
Already in use in a number of abattoirs and in Animal Health offices across the UK, the posters are designed to encourage best-practice, with clear and concise information for operating staff. Additional red meat posters are planned for further species and equipment.
