So there we have it. Minister wrings his hands and looks all upset and says no farmer would want this for "their pride and joy"....but farmers, who now know exactly what the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock look like in practice are obviously happily supplying LSS with their pride and joy. Maysora loading....Bader due in tomorrow....
Just remember, the Bader lost over 3000 sheep in a day in Sept 2014...
"In the Adelaide sheep consignment the mortality rate was 7.28% (3,256 mortalities of the 44,713 sheep loaded). In the Fremantle sheep consignment the mortality rate was 3.00% (923 mortalities of the 30,795 sheep loaded). Overall the voyage mortality rate was 5.53% (4,179 mortalities recorded out of 75,508 sheep loaded onto the vessel)." Govt Investigation Report 46
Oh yes and you wont find the report on the Dept website because they have carefully removed it ....but its on ours.
