BOUND FOR KUWAIT: The Al Messilah is taking the first shipment of live sheep from Western Australia to the Middle East since the trade was temporarily banned last June to avoid losses from heat stress.

Western Australian sheep producers have welcomed the resumption of the live sheep trade after a temporary four-month ban during the northern hemisphere summer.
