Poland | Bodzentyn | Monthly Report March: Cattle and Horse Markets

Bodzentyn cattle market. Mainly young animals are being sold recently.

The cattle market in Lagow and the horse market in Bodzentyn closed their doors forever.

This month our team receives the official information that the horse market in Bodzentyn and the cattle market in Lagow stopped operating. This is the reason why our team has not documented any animals during their market inspections since a couple of months.

There is only one market selling live animals left now that our team routinely inspects for animal welfare violations, the Bodzentyn cattle market. The market operates every Saturday. In March, we notice that there are more animals (on average about 300) at the market than during the previous months. We do not see any injured or neglected animals during our inspections.
