  • Good one Andrew - I remember the smell !!
    • Yes. Whilst I live quite close to the port, I am lucky to not be subject to the prevailing wind and hence the el sheep cologne.
  • I've never even heard of a livestock carrier before, at least not in current context. I guess I'd assumed that they'd have already been processed and packaged by the time they were plying the sea lanes.
    • No the sheep or cattle as the case may be are very much alive when they depart. Their health however upon arrival in the middle east may be a different story.
