Slow start for live export, but projections are positive
Cattle live exports ended 2022 at their lowest point for a decade, and 2023 hasn’t kicked off any better. Australia sent the least number of live cattle offshore in January that it has for that month in at least the past 20 years. In that period, total live exports for any given month – not just January – have only dropped to a lower figure three times. It’s not all bad news though, with the latest industry outlook for the trade forecasting it will pick up as domestic cattle numbers increase and the demand for meat continues to grow in Asia.
