For the well-being of the animals!
At Grossfurtner we do not consider cattle and pigs as goods. For us they are natural creatures we respect. This means that these animals enjoy the greatest possible species-appropriate care before slaughtering.
- Therefore we see animal protection as an important part of our demanding quality management system.
- Therefore we pay attention to the shortest possible transport time with our highly-modern and animal-appropriate equipped means of transport.
- Therefore we employ 30 vets who check rigorously the well-being of the pigs and cattle upon arrival.
- Therefore there is an animal protection representative at Grossfurtner who controls the compliance with animal protection exigencies during unloading, in the building for livestock and in the stunning area.
Unique modern cattle stunning site!
And that’s why we developed a cattle stunning site together with a specialised consulting institute which focuses on the well-being of animals. This site minimises stress as well as failures in stunning. This site is unique in Austria!
