Well, the Al Messilah is in Freo Port and as we drove down Stirling Highway today, there was not one but 3 sparkling new red and white livestock trucks heading out from the port.
7 years of port watching and we've rarely seen a new truck. This morning 3/3 were as pretty as a picture, sparkling.
So....either a) the industry is putting on a massive PR effort (were there any VIPs visiting the ship today?????) or b) the livestock trucking industry is going great guns despite the drop off in live export (so much for all the support industries suffering?).
Unprecedented.... and no we didnt get pictures as we were too gobsmacked.
