All Kosher Slaughtering in Melbourne Must Be Done in Newly-built Casting Pen

Download PDF for this date

All kosher slaughtering in this city must now be done in a newly-constructed casting pen, it was decided here today.

The decision was adopted following a test of the new pen–built by a local company at a cost of $7,800–which was watched by Australian Health Minister W.O. Fulton, members of the Melbourne City Council and the Jewish Kashruth Commission. The pen is believed to be the only one of its type in the world.
