“If the woolgrowing industry can’t move away from mulesing, the viability of the industry in Australia needs to be questioned. The suffering we cause sheep in Australia, simply because we force them to exist in conditions intolerable to them, purely for human financial gain, is unconscionable.” – AJP MP Mark Pearson 6 August 2020

Yet despite the pain caused to sheep during mulesing farmers have said they will resist efforts to ban mulesing and mandate pain relief for other routine animal husbandry procedures.
