Some factors alone would not kill a pig but, coupled with other factors, might well do so. The same thing must be said for all the factors which are able to produce bad meat quality. Very often bad meat quality is the result of the sum of many factors arising from poor transport and handling conditions on the way from the farm and to the stunning box. Dl SCUSS ION R. Dantzer (Franae) What is your explanation of the relationship between the loading density and mortality rate? Do you think this is related to the problem of air circulation between the animals?

During the SUITIDer when there are high air temperatures and there is high humidity we have to allow 15% more space. There is a strong correlation between the mortality rate during transport and the so-called 'Schw~lefaktor', plus 2 x water content in mg/l) (Figure 6).

33 During manual de-stacking the crates are not always kept in a horizontal position so that sometimes all broilers are pressed together along one side of that crate. Removing the broilers from the crates and hanging them onto the shackle of the overhead conveyor is done rather roughly in practice. In a processing plant which slaughters 6 000 broilers per hour, a man from the 'hanging crew' has to hang one bird every 5 sec onto a shackle. Some processors are thinking of conveying the birds on a belt without crates, since this may be expected to result in an increase in the hangers' efficiency, as they can then pick up the broilers more easily.
