Today almost certainly spells the inevitable end of the long haul sheep trade....at least in summer.....and probably forever. LSS has already pulled out. Now, the main sheep player, Emanuels has had its export licence suspended by the Federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
Its over. This really goes to show what has always been obvious to veterinary groups such as VALE who objectively analysed shipboard conditions and reports: that following the law to provide good animal welfare is inconsistent with the live export trade. It is simply not commercial to follow the laws....the laws to protect animals...and it never has been.
