Slaughters horses and cattle, and processes wild-slaughtered animals including kangaroos, for pet food.

Evidence (emails, invoices and animal intake logs) found in the knackery's office identifies at least 4 separate occasions in 2018-20 where NSW horses were sent directly from a stud/breeding facility owned by billionaire Gerry Harvey (who owns the prestigious Magic Millions racing event, and Harvey Norman) to the knackery, in breach of the Racing NSW rules.
