Conversion to livestock carrier is a specialised field developed in response to a steadily increasing demand for this type of vessel and is subject to classification approval. The design considerations include animal care, structural aspects and the application of some animal psychology. Appraisal and feasibility studies of pen structures proposed during recent years and recommendation of standards for acceptance are also considered.
