The slaughterhouse Thönes-Natur-Verbund in Wachtendonk, Germany, specializes in the slaughter of pigs that meet the quality requirements of the Naturverbund (organic and Thönes-Natur). The company has developed a special u-shaped raceway to the electrical stunner. On the one hand, the short drive aisle reduces the period of stressful singling/separation of the pigs, which is always necessary before electric stunning. On the other hand, the curved design gives the animals the feeling of moving back to the starting direction, i.e. back to the other pigs. In addition, good illumination of the stunning device supports the animals' entry. Overall, this u-shaped system allows one person to calmly move pigs to the stunner with minimal use of driving tools and low stress, which in turn can have a positive impact on the stunning effectiveness.
