This is not what Australia wants. This industry is a blight on Australia's international reputation. It is not in the best interests of the economy, not in the best interests of Australian jobs and value-adding, not in the best interests of sustainable and reliable industry and employment for the rural sector and definitely not in the best interests of the animals.

And we saw how the Memorandum Of Understanding with Bahrain worked out for the sheep on board the Ocean Drover at the end of August 2012 - sent to Pakistan to be massacred. A MOU is worth less than nothing.

ESCAS has proved to be worthless, with the same rate of exposed OIE breaches post ESCAS as before... maybe more.

So now WA exporters want to expand the market and start exporting sheep to Iran again... to the tune of one million sheep or more. Read the article here.

    Is astounds me that this is still going on when it is well known that many animals die on the ship and face a prolonged and torturous death
