This is the English version of a training video produced by the MLA/LiveCorp Live Export Program (LEP) of slaughter with stunning prepared for staff in Vietnamese abattoirs that are approved or are in the process of being approved to process Australian cattle. There is a Vietnamese language version of this same video which is part of a suite of materials that support hands on training which the LEP provides on behalf of Australian exporters.

The footage used in this video was recorded in one of the Australian Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) approved abattoirs operating in Vietnam. The video includes information on restraining device preparation, moving animals into a restraining device, operation of stunning equipment, the restraint process, the stunning procedure, management of ineffective stunning and slaughter following effective stunning.

The processes used in this video are consistent with methods of stunning and slaughter that meet international and Australian standards. That said images in this video will still be confronting, particularly to people that have not seen an animal stunned and slaughtered before. The video includes footage of cattle being stunned and cattle being cut after stunning.

Training abattoir staff in proper handling and slaughter procedures is a major part of the Australian livestock export trade’s commitment to ensuring the welfare of Australian exported livestock. The information has broad application and it is the industry’s expectation that our investment in training and development of support materials will help influence and improve the treatment of livestock globally.
