#MuckFreeTruck posters and cab stickers are now available to be displayed across the pork supply chain to encourage all parties to prevent disease spread via transport.

MuckFreeTruck posterA range of materials, produced by AHDB and NPA, can be ordered for display at farms, abattoirs, feed mills and haulage companies, as well as on the trucks, themselves.

Available materials include:  

  • A poster providing advice on best practice across the supply chain
  • Farm gate signs (A4) warning that ‘Dirty vehicles will be turned away’
  • ‘I’m a #MuckFreeTrucker cab stickers.

The poster and sign are available to order NOW from and will be posted as soon as they arrive in stores.

NPA will have the cab stickers available shortly and will ensure AHDB has plenty to send out with any poster orders they receive. You can also get them direct from NPA by emailing

The #MuckFreeTruck campaign – driven by the NPA and AHDB with support from the British Meat Processors Association, the Pig Veterinary Society, the British Pig Association and Red Tractor – has been endorsed by Defra Chief Veterinary Christine Middlemiss.

Muck Free truck farm gate signNPA chief executive Zoe Davies said it was launched in response to evidence that trucks are currently playing a part in spreading diseases like swine dysentery and could potentially be a source of spread for African swine fever (ASF).

“While there are plenty of examples of good practice across the supply chain, there are still too many areas that need improvement and we are attempting to use this campaign to unearth where the issues still are and raise awareness of the importance of clean vehicles.

“So order your materials now and make sure everyone knows what's required. As the campaign says, spread the word, not the disease!”

AHDB health and welfare officer Lauren Dimmack said: “The poster is aimed at all vehicles associated with livestock from feed deliveries, livestock haulage to deadstock collection.

“We know that robust biosecurity is key to protecting the pig herd from devastating diseases such as ASF – just 1g of contaminated faeces is enough to transport the disease which would devastate our pig population.

“The posters are weatherproof and so are ideal to display next to lorry washing facilities to remind drivers of the key stages of a thorough vehicle clean.

“We’re also looking to understand any issues with lorry washing facilities and reasons why drivers don’t always wash out on site – keep an eye out for our questionnaire and let us know your views.”
