In the absence of my camera, I am taking the opportunity for long overdue discussion of some important topics.
Now this is a blog that has always stepped up to tackle the big issues, the hard issues, the issues that have other blogs running scared. One such topic is live animal export and livestock transport and slaughtering. Obviously this has been a source of much debate in the community and the media lately, resulting in a real illumination of the city-country divide, societal attitudes to animal welfare and the reality of food production for many (no, meat doesn't grow on Woolies freezerpacks...).
I sat down with a local livestock producer to record his views on issues related to transport of sheep and their fate after the saleyards.
(alright, it was 2010 at Ballidu)
Never let it be said that this blog shies away from the real issues...
