Not even ESCAS for our breeders!
ESCAS might afford some protection for slaughter cattle but Australian breeding animals are left to fend for themselves once exported. Their fates are highly variable and some can endure shocking conditions as reported by veterinary technician Debbie Clarke in 2012.
Ex live-ex veterinarian, Dr Lynn Simpson, has also highlighted the plight of Australian breeding animals...and it is very clear that their dollar value does not protect them from end-destination cruelty.
ESCAS is far from the be-all and end-all we are told it is...but there needs to be some type of ESCAS with end destination auditing and monitoring for our exported breeders.
