Live Cattle Conundrum

KS hasn't seen the Four Corners program on cruelty to our live cattle exports at Indonesian abbattoirs. Agricultural exports to nearby populous and increasingly wealthy Asian nations is potentially a key growth industry for northern Australia. There has been plently of commentary around on this issue and impacts on the beef industry. An interesting alternative cattle industry perspective defending the Indonesian live trade today comes from an email doing the rounds from an industry insider and published at BusinessSpectator, linked here without comment.

I am asking for a fair go. You have been expertly manipulated. Hear the actual other side of the story let the Australian public see both sides. I am happy to make all the arrangements. This is too important to let sit with the images you portrayed on Monday without recourse. -Scot Braithwaite
