RICK WILSON MP
Bindi Murray farms with three generations of her family near Woodanilling and prides herself on breeding and raising healthy, content livestock which are supplied to Middle Eastern markets.
Bindi is committed to working with exporters and the Government to ensure the industry upholds the animal welfare practices she expects, and that her sheep deserve. As a farmer, Bindi wants to see change to Australia’s sheep export industry driven by science and a cultural readjustment.
Bindi recently addressed MP's who toured a live export vessel during loading. She believes there is a big difference between stress and distress, and these proposed new Heat Stress Risk Assessment recommendations may constrain the continuation of the live export industry.
