We are extremely disappointed that our live cattle is yet again leaving Australia in record numbers. Our cattle stocks are being depleted and we are concerned that Australians will not be able to afford eating red meat in the future. All cattle should be processed in Australia by Australian workers for the Australian market and excess stock should only leave Australia as boxed product which has been produced by Australian Meat workers. The Meat Workers Union has worked tirelessly over the years to highlight this appalling trade which is of no benefit to the animals, to the workers and the consumers. AUSTRALIAN JOBS FOR AUSTRALIAN WORKERS.
