Australian Beef Cattle Exports
Australia is the largest exporter of beef cattle for both breeding
and fattening (feeder) purposes. The value of Australian Beef
Cattle Exports annually ranges between AUD $650 million up to $700
million. Major importers of Australian Beef Cattle include Indonesia,
the Philippines, China, Turkey, the Russian Federation and many other
countries who import cattle for specialised breeding programs.
Due to Australia's quarantine status and freedom from many diseases,
Australia is very often the first preference for an importing country
to source beef cattle. As a result of the vast variation in climatic
regions, Australia offers beef cattle breeds such as Angus, Murray
Grey, Wagyu, Brahman, Santa Gertrudis and a wide variety of other
breeds and crossbreds.
Australian Livestock Exports has a close association with many of
Australia's top cattle breeders and the ability to source large numbers of
breeding cattle from either pedigree or commercial bloodlines through to
smaller numbers of rare and more specialised breeds of Australians Beef Cattle.
