Real Aussie Farmers have explained that the comment "HEAT STRESS IS CONSTANTLY CLAIMING THE LIVES OF ANIMALS ON LIVE EXPORT VESSELS AS THEY CROSS HEMISPHERES ENROUTE TO THEIR DESTINATION PORTS" is just a myth, Myth Number 3 to be precise!
Very nice to know that all the work by the industry has been done on a nonsense topic. All those MLA reports clearly rubbish. The Heat stress Risk Assessment for voyages is probably unnecessary and clearly both industry and DA vets keep getting it wrong. As for the scientific papers on the topic.....obviously fatally flawed peer review processes.
So, why do those animals pant when the temperature gets a bit hot and sticky? It's obviously just the excitement of being on a nice cruise with their mates. And sometimes the excitement is just all too much for them.....must have been a great party on the Bader when over 4000 died on an afternoon .....of excitement.
