Animal Liberation NSW were awarded a Voiceless Grant of $20,000 towards their ‘Feedlots: Marbled Meat Expose’ project which aimed to investigate conditions in Australian feedlots. The project was specifically focused on animals bred for ‘marbled meat’ with the lions share of work being put into gathering first hand evidence regarding the levels of disease and suffering experienced by these animals. Animal Liberation’s expose eventually resulted in investigations by both NSW Police and the RSPCA. The information gathered as a result of this grant was used as evidence to convince the Assistant Police Commissioner for Rural Crimes Superintendent, Geoff McKechnie, to make it a Task Project to investigate shelter for cattle feedlots in summer, or during periods of excessive heat.
