The West Africa Centre for the Protection of Animal Welfare(WACPAW) is embarking on a project to reduce pain and suffering of animals during loading and unloading by constructing loading ramps in three cattle markets in Ghana.This would help improve the welfare of the animals in Ghana.
Animals at the auction markets go through a lot of pain and stress through injuries they sustain during loading and unloading which affects their welfare needs and also affect the quality of the meat they produce.
All animals bound for journey would be kept in the holding pen which is connected to the ramps and helped to freely walk into the waiting vehicle standing at the other side of the ramp without any stress or pain, hence t construction of these ramps.
The project would help improve the general welfare of the animals at the markets and also reduce drastically the number of animals that gets injured during loading and unloading. This would also help build a conciouce animal welfare community at the cattle markets in Ghana.
