Australia’s livestock export industry was not only exporting livestock around the world, but best practice in animal welfare as well, LiveCorp chairman David Galvin told a Senate Estimates hearing in Canberra this week.
LiveCorp has made 116 R&D reports publicly available on its website to help other countries improve their own knowledge about animal welfare. "We want people to come to us and seek our advice,” Mr Galvin said.
Looks like the Egyptians may have forgotten to download those documents. Oh thats right we stopped exporting there when 10 years of direct involvement failed to prevent animal abuse at Egyptian abattoirs.
So lets check a few other countries....well there was Indonesia in 2011 (after 20 years involvement), Israel, Gaza, Jordan, Kuwait etc......
Its nice to think we influence other countries Mr Galvin....shame it doesnt happen in practice.
