Driver stories from your area

Your pick-up site should not only be designed to take into account the workflow of the farm, passers-by and the dead animals that need to be kept as fresh and dry as possible. It must also take into account the driver who has to load the animals onto the truck. Have you ever thought about how your pick-up site appears to your local Daka driver?

We had a chat with a driver to get an insight into what those who collect your dead animals think a good collection point looks like.

Daka’s drivers pick up dead animals from between 30 and 100 farms a day. The many visits provide a special experience with the layout of the collection sites, but also the meeting with the public when the animals are transported to Daka SecAnim for recycling.

Southeast Jutland: Between Tønder and Vojens – driver finds his way better than the GPS

This summer marks 18 years since truck driver Tommy Andersen got behind the wheel and drove his first route to pick up animals for Daka. Farmers have become good at both creating good access roads and registering animals, he says.
