At a livestock farm in Flanders dead animals are picked up by Rendac, a company dedicated to the processing of animal carcasses. Logistically the collection of these carcasses is a real organisation where the residence time of these dead animals on the farms of origin needs to be kept as short as possible. However, this can in the summer, where there is also a higher risk for some species, have an unpleasant effect as regards to smell nuisance to the environment. The livestock farmer to prevent an infection and as soon as Rendac has been informed, has to keep the carcasses on a paved, covered (sheltered) pick up area away from the proper road of the facility and from the vicinity of the public road to prevent the spread of disease by this pickup transport between the various livestock farms. For some livestock farms this means that the livestock carcasses will end up laying close to neighbours as well as a reasonable distance away from the farm itself.
