transport permits is returned to the farm of origin. Most of the animals auctioned that day were 6 month‐old weaned cattle in excellent condition.
It was intended to visit a second private veterinarian, but due to other commitments the team decided to skip that appointment.
The evaluation team tried to diversify the meetings and visits as much as possible. Due to time constraints and the very large distances to be covered between locations, possibilities to choose sites according to classical sampling methods were not possible. The sites visited were therefore selected more by convenience than as a random sample.
