AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTUR4,L COUNCIL

SOILED SHE FOR SLAUGHTER

The Australian Agricultural Council today at lt.Hagen

agreed that it would be impracticable to introduce uniform State

legislation to regulate standards of cleanliness of live sheep

yarded for slaughter but the Council endorsed a suggestion that all

Governments should make widely imown the need for sheep to be

presented in a clean condition.

The Council was informed that yarding of unclean sheep

was an important factor in current difficulties being experienced

in meeting American and Canadian requirements in relation to

the sanitary dressing of mutton carcases.
