A DVD, Be Legal – a guide to transporting animals by road, has been launched to help producers meet competence tests being introduced next year.

The DVD offers key advice to those who move animals by road and details a step-by-step practical guide to planning and documentation, fitness for transport, vehicle requirements, loading and unloading. It also includes tips on handling cattle, space allowances and guidelines for water, feed and rest.

Covering all major livestock species including cattle, sheep, pigs, deer and horses, the DVD will also link in with tests available on Animal-I’s website.

The DVD, priced at £19.99, comes with a carrier case for documents, complete with aide memoire and is available from animal-i.com or by calling 0845 389 9777.
