Marel works closely with customers on these issues, delivering live-animal handling systems that improve production sustainability, both regarding animal welfare and raw material utilization. Efficient and gentle handling of animals during pre-slaughter is not only best for the animals, but it is also essential for the best meat quality.
Marel designs stable and runway systems with animal welfare in mind. For example, we design runway systems and center track restrainer stunners based on Temple Grandin's humane handling designs.
We offer a variety of different cattle stunning options, including ritual stunning systems. These systems are developed and specified jointly with the customer to ensure that all national requirements and laws in connection with animal welfare are followed in the stunning and killing process.
