Built in Croatia in 2002, the Becrux is capable of carrying around 75,000 sheep, 14,000 cattle or a combination of both. To ensure the safety, welfare and comfort of all the animals onboard, it is fitted with automated feed systems, a fresh water producing system, temperature controls, powerful ventilation systems and spacious one-tier enclosures.
