VALE have just updated our webpages for High Mortality Voyage Reports and Independent Observer Reports. High Mortality Voyage 63 still has no report after 3 years. Voyage 66 is now up (delayed due to operational oversight (!!) and then delayed by Awassi Express investigations). Still the usual round of no obvious cause for the short haul high mortality voyages.....well go figure....they have a stockperson and NOT a veterinarian. A 4 day stockman course is not quite the same as a 5 year veterinary degree.....or is it? According to the exporters (Voyage 76), "an experienced stockperson would provide greater health and welfare outcomes for the livestock”. One has to wonder why the shipboard veterinarians continue to defend an industry that so demeans veterinary qualifications.
