    I am so against this and do feel it is time to think laterally on the subject. It is hard enough to be a farmer without this controversy.
    Why on earth doesn’t the government give more incentives for value adding in Australia. We need the jobs with so much manufacturing going off-shore.
    There must surely be an overseas market for frozen meat and by-products as well as similar canned goods. We hear of the shortage of protein being a big issue in years to come so why not start working towards sensible solutions.
    Countries which demand live animals (probably because of religious practices) will either adapt or go without.

    Abirdo,I thought(& hoped) that cruel practice of sending live sheep overseas, had been abandoned, as there were so many protests against the Government for allowing same?!

    No the government hasn’t got the guts to ban it. They are currently deciding who will get the next export licenses to do it.

    I have just received an email saying a bill has been passed by the senate stopping the export of sheep. Two men mentioned Andrew Willkie & Adam Brandt, also 176 different kind countries against exporting sheep.
