International livestock trading
Auroch is the french leader for catlle exportations outside European Union to the countries of North Africa and middle East.
Each week catlle for slaughter, breedind or fettening are loaded by full livestock vessels from the port of Sete - France. The animals are exportated to countries like Turkey, Lebanon, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya.
We take care of the catlle from their loading in the truck directly in the farm untill their final destination in the port of the importing country.
From now on it has been the fourth generation of Houot family which has been working in livestock business. With more than 50 000 heads of cattle exportated in 2015, Auroch is the leader on the market of export outside European Union of alive cattle in France.
The animals are drove to the port of loading, or directly at destination by special livestock trucks. Then, the cattle are unloaded in a stable in order to rest for a few moments, to be sorted out, and now they are ready to be loaded in the vessel.
All the logistics is organized in order to the loading of the vessel to be as fast as possible. On board, a special formed crew take care of the cattle during all the sailing untill their arrived to the port of destination.
