Well, if thats the case, it needs to follow McCarthy's 4th recommendation....to change the heat stress model so that there is <2% chance of >5% sheep having heat stress on a voyage....Recommendation 4....the recommendation the government chose not to accept!
Freedom-of-information documents provided to Fairfax Media June revealed that the Al Shuwaikh - would need to reduce sheep number by 68 per cent to 92 per cent on most decks in June, July, August and September.
So Littleproud…..YOU chose not to accept that recommendation and YOU are letting one of the ships that should be most affected by McCarthy’s Report sail at one of the worst months of the year….and then with a subsidiary of Emanuels.
Recommendation 4—Heat Stress Risk Assessment
“As an interim measure, it is recommended that the risk be set at a 2% probability of 5% percent of the sheep becoming affected by heat stress (Heat stress score 3—see Table 1)….”
