Farm animals spend a lot of time on trucks, up to 72 to hours at a time in some instances. And these are trucks without any form of climate control in the cargo area. In fact most of them have slatted sides with large openings that provide plenty of fresh air but no protection from the elements.
These conditions of animal transport are especially worrisome at times like the recent Canadian deep freeze, a one-in-200-years event of arctic conditions. What can be done to provide better protection?
