Those who think the battles will ever end, the exposés will stop coming, the cruelty will abate, or that those of us with a moral compass will ever stop fighting for an end to this outdated, unsustainable, unreliable and immoral trade in suffering are in for a shock.

 

Live animal exports are Australia's shame - cruel to animals, unreliable for producers, bad for the economy, and shipping jobs offshore - not 10,000 jobs as is claimed to be produced by this trade (most of which would still be required with an expanded chilled meat export trade and domestic processing), but arguably 250,000 jobs, when taking into account abattoirs, meat packaging, yarding, feedlotting, leather tanning, leather manufacturing, meat distribution, package manufacturing, meat grading dyes, meat and bone cutting implements, organic fertilisers, casein, meat inspection officers, butcher’s supplies, freezing, works uniforms and laundry services, transport services, and retail, to name a few.
