RuralCo's southern live cattle exporting business, Frontier International Agri, has had its exporters licence cancelled by the Department of Agriculture over the Johnes disease shipment to Japan.
This is astounding....despite multiple non-compliances of ESCAS resulting in serious (and usually widespread) animal cruelty, licences are not revoked. But now a trade has been suspended by another country, it is serious enough to suspend a licence.
Yep, Dept of Ag acting appropriately.....with its main aim to promote trade. Regulation? Sure, only if it interferes with that trade.
