Proposed INTRODUCTION and CODE:
KOSHER SLAUGHTER OF SHEEP SHECHITA
Shechita is achieved by swiftly severing the trachea, oesophagus, carotid arteries and jugular veins of an animal being slaughtered for kosher.
The effect of Shechita is to achieve a massive drainage of blood by a sudden and voluminous evacuation of the blood vessels causing terminal anaemia of the brain, unconsciousness and death
Ritual slaughter is a procedure which can be greatly improved by the use of a total quality management (TQM) approach to continual incremental improvements in the process. With upright restraint equipment significant reduction in the suffering of animals being slaughtered for kosher meat will be achieved.
