Our team and equipment
The TCC Group is available 24/7 and has a compact First Responder team. That means that in a very short time frame, usually within 24 hours, a complete team can be on location to start a culling. In addition, we can quickly scale up to a regional crisis team with multiple teams on different farms in action. This can be in 1 country or in several countries at the same time.
All our equipment is systematically assembled in shipping containers. The First Responder team can also be quickly on site with smaller transport or visit places that are difficult to reach. Thanks to this system, our equipment can be transported and dropped off quickly. This makes our transport system flexible within a crisis area.
Depending on the assignment, we make a choice from the following systems:
- Mobile offices with lighting, office design etc ..
- Decontamination units with shower, office, storage of protective clothing, drinks, food etc…
- Support units with disinfection material, pressure washers, pumps, spare parts, tools, lighting etc…
- Aggregates for independent power supply
- Support units with spare clothing, disinfection material, toiletries, boots etc…
- And of course 1 or more euthanization units as required as you can read on our machines page
Individual services and products
In addition to our full service, we also supply the individual parts: equipment, training, advice, gas team and gas. You can then decide for yourself what you do in the cull and what part you leave to specialist TCC-group.
Not a customer? No problem: we can be of service quickly so that the disease is under control as quickly as possible. In Europe but also worldwide.
TCC-group states that an outbreak of an animal disease must be brought under control quickly, effectively and in an animal-friendly manner. This prevents spreading among people. Non-infected livestock can be saved. Farmers are protected from destroying their source of income.
Fipronil, dioxin, genetic errors…
In the event that a herd comes into contact with toxic substances such as fipronil, dioxin or asbestos, the veterinary may decide to have the animals cleared away. In this way it is possible to prevent these toxic substances from entering the human or animal food chain.
A genetic error can also occur during the breeding of animals. This is often a reason for the livestock producer to have the animals cleared away.
Barn fires or other accidents
Sometimes a fire starts in a corral with cattle. Often all animals die from smoke or fire. Sometimes a part of the herd is spared, but the animals have been in contact with the fire or the smoke. They suffer pain or are contaminated with toxins. Immediately after the emergency services such as the fire brigade, the TCC-group can take action to clear up the affected animals. This prevents further suffering from, for example, chickens or pigs.
