Conclusions

Increased resting time between pre-loading handling and loading seem to decrease time to load reindeer groups and some stress related behaviors.
Wrongly constructed loading ramps seem to be the major cause for slipping and falling in reindeer during loading/unloading.
Herd composition seems to have an effect on behaviors displayed during loading.
Possible habituation to transport needs to be investigated further.
