Indonesia slashed the number of export permits from 520,000 in last year to 283,000 this year.

It says it wants to become self sufficient with beef production.

ABCRural reports that Katherine Elders branch manager, Warrick Barrett, says there'll be few cattle bought in the Top End for another two months.

"Most of the exporters at this stage have bought cattle to fulfil their permit issue for the first quarter, so it's meant that a lot of exporters are now probably out of the market until April," he says.
