SYDNEY (Biz Hub)— Viet Nam is now importing more live cattle from Australia than ever, according to the South East Asia Livestock Services, one of Australia’s largest exporters.

The Australian Live Export Council estimates that about 20,000 heads of cattle have been exported to the country so far this year, with a large part of them contributed by Queensland cattle producers.

Sid Parker, Manager of the Darwin Port for the South East Asia Livestock Services, said Viet Nam is a crucial market of Australia as it often imports heavy cattle of up to 400 to 500 kilos.-VNS
