Broome live cattle export to hit 100,000 head for 2017

Written on the 7 May 2017

Broome live cattle export numbers are expected to hit 100,000 head for 2017, as pastoral animals start to enter the market.

The Kimberley Port Authority has reported a bumper start to the season, loading about 8000 head for export in the last week, with a solid pipeline of cattle predicted for months ahead.

KPA chief executive Kevin Schellack said the prolonged northern wet season had only caused a "small delay" to the flow of cattle from pastoral stations.

"We are preparing to load another 3000 head for Indonesia in the coming days, so we have well and truly started the season," he said.

Mr Shellack said the 100,000 target was a slight increase on last year's result.
