Subject: [sharechat] Scott Technology Limited - research, meat processing

Scott Technology Limited has issued a stock exchange notice advising of
approval of an automated lamb carcass processing research project.

In my opinion this is a good move for Scott.

Meat processing is a labour intensive activity, physically demanding involving
a high risk of injury for those involved. Meat processors could gain hugely
from deploying any successful results from this project.

If the knowledge gained could be leveraged over into beef processing this
would also be positive.

As an aside; meat processors in the US depend heavily on illegal immigrants
for their labour supply. Instances have been recorded of meat processors
having half their work force dissapear after Immigration and Naturalisation
Service raids.

US meat processors also use water blasting as a labour saving measure to avoid
using butchering to separate meat from bone. Naturally the water stream blows
everything off the bone including nerve tissue.

As nerve tissue is a known vector for the transmission of mad cow disease, it
is questionable as to whether regulatory authorities will tolerate such brute
force methods in the future.

To summarise. In the future who will a meat processor call if they are faced
with labour difficulties and/or increasingly complex safety related processing
requirements?

Scott Technology hopefully.

Boop-boop-de-do Marilyn
