…or lack of them.
I was reading Private Eye which has some seriously good journalistic stories untainted by bias (it’s not just a satirical magazine) and saw a story about the trade deal between the UK and Australia.
The story contained some information about the transportation of cattle and sheep in Australia and what conditions the animals endure when travelling.
In Australia, regulations allow for cattle over the age of six months and sheep over the age of four months to be transported for 48 hours without water or cooling fans. It is also common practice to deprive animals of feed and water beforehand to reduce faecal and urine output during transport.
Try and remember this when you’re enjoying your next Australian meat product.
