Aussie Cattle Exports Resume

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Australia’s government has removed a month-long ban on live cattle exports to neighbouring Indonesia, saying it was satisfied the A$320-million trade could resume after a furor over mistreatment of livestock. The minority government has been under pressure from ranchers to overturn the ban, put in place after television footage showed cattle being beaten, whipped and maimed prior to slaughter in some Indonesian abattoirs. – Reuters
