Thai-riffic opportunity for cattle producers

The Australian cattle industry applauds the government's announcement of an agreed health protocol for Australian feeder and slaughter cattle with Thailand. 

The live cattle trade provides market opportunities for Australian cattle producers and the opening of this market represents the fifth live export market since the Coalition came into government.

Howard Smith, Cattle Council President, said "The finalisation of health protocol with Thailand represents another avenue for Australian producers to choose the best possible market for their cattle.

"The more markets available to producers, the more competition there will be for their cattle which should have a positive effect on prices.

"Breaking into new markets does take time, so we look forward to working with ALEC to help producers take advantage of this opportunity" Mr Smith said.
