USDA issues final rule on commercial transportation of equines to slaughter

USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has published a final rule on amended regulations regarding commercial transportation of equines to slaughter. APHIS said the rule, effective Oct. 7, adds a definition of equine for slaughter and makes other changes that will extend the protections to equines bound for slaughter but delivered first to an assembly point, feedlot or stockyard.

The agency said the action would further ensure the humane treatment of such equines by helping to ensure that the unique and special needs of equines in commercial transportation to slaughter are met. Read the rule at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-09-07/html/2011-22762.htm.
