The Solution

"The Greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Vivisection is the blackest of all the black crimes that man is at present committing against God and His fair creation. If ill becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God, the Compassionate , if we in turn will not practice elementary compassion towards our fellow creatures"
-Mahatma Gandhi

Australia is too far a distance from the rest of the world, to export LIVE. It's that SIMPLE. The solution is A Kind Meat Proposal. This venture has gained approval in Western Australia as reported by FarmOnline and The Rural News. This cooperative is a joint venture between a Malaysian corporation and a WA wheatbelt farmer to export Halal certified meat for distribution throughout the Muslim world.

from the rural news

A group of West Australian producers has formed a joint venture with Malaysia, to supply the world with halal meat products.

The Wheatbelt Growers Co-operative from Dowerin has signed an agreement with the Perak State Development Corporation to provide 100,000 sheep and 16,000 cattle each year.

Perak wants to become the world distributor of halal food to Muslim countries, with a potential market of 300 billion people.

Chief Minister Tajol Rosli says that'll provide a valuable alternative for Australia's live export trade.

"As it is now, halal food from Malaysia is recognized throughout the world.

"There are some countries that produce halal food, but it is not recognised, especially by the Middle East.

"If it's marketed as Australian, then the recognition by the Muslim countries would not be as good as if it is marketed from Malaysia."

The deal consists of 100,000 sheep and 16,000 cattle would be killed in WA each year under halal slaughter codes and the meat exported to join venture partner Perak State Development Corporation in Malaysia.

The cooperative is negotiating for the slaughter to be carried out at Walsh's in Bunbury and the first meat is expected to be exported in 12 months, but is hoped it will happen sooner.
