Well approximately 150000 sheep have been saved a trip from the Australian winter to the extremes of the Middle Eastern summer this year. LSS has announced that the current arrangements (presumably increased space) are not commercially viable and pulled out.
Lets not forget that the Australian Veterinary Association Review recommended this same space allocation across all body weights and all months of the year to prevent adverse animal welfare outcomes. There is no doubt that the "no fear, no pain” live export industry has essentially traded on animal suffering for 30-40 years because it was too expensive to provide enough space for good animal welfare.
But as LSS disappears (no doubt leaving farmers in the lurch), could this be …going….going……????gone????
