Well here we are in the 21st Century, with all these marvellous updated livestock carriers.....or so we are told......
So for all those who just want to feast their eyes, we suggest popping in to Fremantle Port today.....we have the Dareen (1994) and the Bader (a very youthful 1978).
And, no, VALE has no idea why the Bader spent much of last year bobbing about in the Middle East. Rumours abounded but its safe to say she wasnt scrapped. Refit? Possible but not immediately apparent. Coat of paint....ah there's a thought...those rust stains certainly seem to have a diminished ....a little. Marvellous what a coat of paint can do for animal welfare and morale.
