Poland| Bodzentyn, Lagow | Monthly report February cattle & horse markets
In February our team visited the cattle and horse markets 10 times. Nowadays, the average number of cattle at the market is around 350 and around 30 for horses. We noticed only 7 cows with overgrown hooves, 2 emaciated ones and 2 with injuries on ischial bones (including a cow from Germany). The general condition of observed horses is good we did not see any injured or sick ones.
During one of the markets our attention was brought by a trader who inside his car had about 10 calves without ear tags. Luckily, a Veterinary Inspector is present that day. We reported this case immediately and the inspection was performed. We are still waiting for the official results of this control.
Because of cold weather in February, most of the trade ends very early and about 9am the market is empty. We report all the infringements to competent authorities.
