He really doesn't get it, does he? His precious trade is on its knees. Balzarini, decent, hardworking Australians - 84% of us despise you. We are deeply, deeply ashamed of you and your miserable cohorts.

Live export in the throes of death. 26.9.2012

Wellard's buys an abattoir, but says live exports will continue.

 The livestock company embroiled in the debacle that's left about 20,000 sheep stranded in Pakistan has bought an abattoir in Western Australia.  However, Wellard Rural Exports denies the move shows it's lost faith in the future of live exports.

The company has purchased the mothballed Beaufort River Meats at Woodanilling, 250 kilometres south-east of Perth.

Wellard's chairman, Mauro Balzarini, says animals slaughtered there will be sent to the Middle East, but it won't stop the company sending live sheep and cattle overseas.

"No I don't think so. We are still positive. The cracks are there, but I think we can fix them," he said.

"In terms of investment, this is still a fraction of what we are investing in our export business through new vessels etc.

"So we don't think (live exports) are over. To the contrary, we think it will flourish again.
