LIVE export supporters are being called on again to rally in Fremantle on Sunday, December 8.
In November last year there was an overwhelming response to the call for a counter rally to the Stop Live Exports group's anti-live export protest.
More than 1800 farmers, truck drivers, stock agents and other industry representatives gathered in Fremantle to stand up for the live export industry.
It was one of the biggest show of unity and support from the agricultural sector in recent years.
Organiser Michael Trant said a similar event to last year was being planned.
"We will gather at Merv Cowan Park near Fremantle's Stirling Bridge from 9am, in a show of support for the trade and its importance to the entire agricultural and rural community," Mr Trant said.
Live export workers and farmers will talk to the crowd about front-line animal welfare improvements being made along the entire supply chain, from export to slaughter.
Mr Trant said those involved with the trade have had a gutful of the industry's positive stories being continually ignored.
"We're sick of hearing blatant lies from those trying to shut down the trade, like complaints about overcrowded trucks, or 'pregnant sheep' on board export boats which actually turn out to be male sheep. These people are trying to tell us what is good for animals," he said.
"Out of the 100 plus countries that export live animals, Australia is the only one doing anything to improve conditions in foreign countries.
"We want people to know that banning something fixes nothing.
"Since last year's rally we've been forced to sell our farm, because we have lost markets due to the tighter regulations placed on the trade.
"The protesters don't seem to realise or care about the effect it's having on our farmers."
Mr Trant said he has heard of buses being organised from as far away as Northampton, Morawa, Three Springs and Bunbury.
"Everyone is welcome to come and show your support for the farmers, the truckies, the stock agents, the yardmen, the jackaroos, jillaroos, feed mills, hay and grain growers, lotfeeders, vets, AQIS officials, shearers and all the other support industries involved," he said.
