A mate of your truly was tickled pink to read the following information in its advice to an update in the food regulations.
In its discussion on proposed changes to The Animal Products Notice: Production and Supply Processing, MPI advised that: "Notice Reference Proposed amendment: Type of change: Reason for amendment 2 (3). Create a separate goat animal code: Update Goats are not sheep. They are different mammals."
Isn't it comforting to know that the more than $1 billion spent a year on funding MPI is not wasted and that it recognises that 'goats aren't sheep', but in fact are 'different mammals'?
