Middle East sheep exports policy options.

The NFF has consulted its member organisations on the proposed policy options and supports the view of Sheep Producers Australia (SPA) and the Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council (ALEC) that the four policy options outlined in the discussion paper are reasonable starting points, but that each would require review as new information – such as animal welfare indicators – and technology become available. Accordingly, we support the development of an Option 5, in line with the rationale outlined in the SPA and ALEC submissions to this process.
