Portland To Be Site of First Conference on Shipping Livestock By Water.
Technological breakthroughs in treatment, containerization and increases in the
number of vessels outfitted to carry animals have made shipping via ocean attractive
to both importers and exporters. Modifications in quarantining procedures and
breeding developments have also made it an increasingly important alternative.
Since the rapid price increases in fuel, many shippers have turned to all-water
transportation for a variety of cargoes. Consequently, the maritime industry has
continued to carry bigger volumes of cattle, sheep and swine. With the growth of
ocean transport of livestock many questions have been raised about the procedures one
must use, the cost involved and potential problem areas.
Responding to the needs of shippers as well as the transporters, the Office of
Transportation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture has joined with the Port of
Portland, Oregon, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, the Northwest Quarantine
Station in Portland and the Agriculture Department of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce to sponsor a day-and-a-half conference on shipping livestock by water.
The conference is planned for Wednesday, June 23, and Thursday, June 24, 1982, at the
Red Lion Jantzen Beach in Portland. The registration fee is $70 before June 7 and
$80 after and includes all meals, a tour of the Port facilities and a copy of the
