Report reveals progress of export industry

THE live export industry continued to improve its performance throughout 2017 with a new record low mortality level for cattle and a 11 per cent fall in sheep mortalities.

The figures were released in the comprehensive National Livestock Export Industry Sheep, Cattle and Goat Transport Performance Report 2017, which was prepared by The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) and published by Meat and Livestock Australia in October 2018.

The summary report provides the only comprehensive breakdown by species, time of year, ships, load ports and major destinations over the calendar year, along with summary analyses of trends over time.
