Price Hike for Indonesian Cattle17 February 2012
INDONESIA - Indonesian farmers say the price of Indonesian cattle has gone up by 20 per cent since the Government announced restrictions on imports from Australia.
In December, the number of live cattle imports was reduced to 280,000 from 520,000 and the boxed beef quota was also cut.
The Australian cattle industry is expecting consumers in Indonesia will react angrily to a price hike in beef.
Achmad Ya'kub, from the Peasant Farmers Association told AB Rural that they'll keep up pressure on the Indonesian Government to restrict cattle imports.
