This scenario gives advice and instruction on how inspectors should verify that cattle in drive alleys are being treated humanely.

According to the scenario, inspection program personnel should determine compliance for each situation on a case by case basis after examining all the applicable facts and conditions that are relevant to a determination under 9 CFR 313.2(e).
