10 June 2011,
BRISBANE’S largest live cattle exporter has put ethics before profits by supporting the Federal Government’s Indonesian live export ban.
“This issue has made it clear that we must only allow our cattle to reach those facilities where we can be absolutely confident they will be handled in line with internationally accepted welfare practices.”
