A pair of farmers in Australia have been sentenced to prison for their involvement in an elaborate semen racket.
Henning Laue and Torben Soerensen pled guilty to breaking biosecurity and quarantine laws for smuggling Danish pig semen into the country, according to Australia’s ABC News.
Soerensen, who is a managing director and pork producer at a pork company, received a prison sentence of three years, ABC reports.
His production manager, Laue, was sentenced to two years.
The company, GD Pork Torben Soerensen, was fined $500,000 AUD (£279,850), but it is facing liquidation.
According to ABC, authorities first got tipped off to the cum-runners in February 2017.
