Pig sperm is transported secretly in shampoo bottles!

Australia is a country that is careful about its safety and quality when it comes to importing something. They are especially careful about importing sperm from their livestock, as there is a high risk of replicating germs.

The Australian market is very competitive. Because of this, there is competition among many to overtake each other. This is especially so in the case of animal husbandry.

This is why some livestock owners hide from the authorities and import various kinds of nutrients. The latest news comes in the wake of two people being illegally transported to Australia in a bottle of sperm shampoo from Danish pigs.


Two Australian veterinarians, Toben Sorensen and Henin Lau have been jailed recently for allegedly transporting Danish pig sperm to Australia for several years after being illegally transported in shampoo bottles.

They are accused of causing serious dangers to the country's livestock industry. This is especially so in Australia, where flu and oral diseases, plague and African swine flu are at risk.

According to Australia's ABC Media Network, the man arrested has been GD Pork, Managing Director and Production Manager.

They have imported pig sperm into Australia for a period of eight years from 2009 to 2017, producing about 2,000 pigs. It is thought that about 200 ounces of sperm were added to this process.

Sorensen was sentenced to three years in prison and Lau to two years in prison. In addition, Denmark and its subsidiary, G.I. The Australian government has also imposed a fine of US $ 337,400 on De Pork Company.

Purpose of importing sperm

Danish pigs give birth to about 6-7 calves per guard. Sorensen and Lau have been trying to get a more 'harvest' of Danish pigs among their pigs on the farm in Pinjarra.

However, according to Australian law, it is a serious violation of the law. Australia's agriculture minister, Bridget McKenzie, says that if a virus had spread in Australia in this endeavor, it would have endangered not only the animal but also human lives.

A complex situation

Sorensen's lawyer objected to the verdict against Sorensen, saying that the "racket" was not Sorensen's idea. He also said that he did not know much about it.

In fact, behind this is GD Pork's parent company, Pork Australia ApS, and the Danish companies and individuals with whom Denmark is affiliated. In particular, the Danish co-owner of Henrik Enderlein, a co-owner of Pork Australia ApS, is behind the majority of imports, he says. Sorensen joined in 2012.

Because both Pork Australia ApS and GD Pork are Danish companies, the Australian government cannot directly support their businesses. However, the Australian government has now given up all credit facilities available to businesses in Australia.

Responding to Sorensen's lawyer's argument, the judge who gave the verdict said that if the mastermind of the racket was to be brought to the Australian court, the sentence would have been greater than that of Sorensen and Lau.

He added that he was well aware that the two men had been subjected to pressure from his company, and that they were doing so under Australian law and international law.

The two men also said that they had severely broken the Biosecurity Legal System. He concluded, therefore, that any punishment was inevitable.

How the racket was discovered

The Australian authorities have given up on the racket in 2017. They have found several emails related to this. Accordingly, they were able to go and find some pork fiber samples. They understand the genetic background of this and they have finally netted the racket.

The End

Since 1995, the importation of threatened biodiversity, such as pig ejaculation, to Australia has been strictly prohibited. As a result, Australia has been shielded from the recent spread of African swine flu. Fortunately for the racket, no pathogens have yet been discovered in Australia.

In a short time, the Australian pork industry, worth about $ 3.6 billion, would have been completely destroyed. If the hoof and oral disease had entered the country it would have infected not only pigs but also cattle, goats and sheep. The Australian Government is currently conducting further investigations into the origins of the disease.
