CONSORT, Alta. — Livestock Transport Alliance of North America (LTANA) founder, Tim O’Byrne has received an award of distinction from the Alberta Farm Animal Care Association (AFAC).
The award was presented to O’Byrne on Mar. 27 in Edmonton, recognizing innovation and communication.
Meanwhile, O’Byrne has been busy laying the groundwork for the alliance, and has recently returned from meetings with livestock transportation representatives in the U.S. and Mexico. The humane transport expert facilitated a number of discussions at the Animal Transportation Association annual conference in Mexico City Apr. 15-17, focusing on emergency procedures for transporters and developing a proficiency toolkit for livestock truckers.
O’Byrne also met with the American Trucking Associations (ATA) who were quick to support the fledgling group. It was at the ATA’s recommendation that LTANA adopted the word alliance rather than association.
