Cattle Export Permits Less Than Expected

AUSTRALIA - The first shipment of Australian cattle left for Indonesia today, after it was announced that Indonesia had issued permits for 60,000 head of Australian cattle for the first quarter of 2012.

This is down about 40,000 for the same period last year.

Industry associations are disappointed with the numbers, saying this a lot less than they had hoped for.

Last year, Indonesia announced that they would cut Australian cattle permits in a bid to increase the country's self-sufficiency.

In June last year the Australian government suspended live exports to Indonesia for a month, after undercover footage showed animals being mistreated in Indonesian abattoirs.
