Last Kimberley cattle ship for the year leaves Broome bound for Indonesia
Written on the 16 November 2016The Sahiwal Express was loaded with around 2,800 head of cattle this week in Broome, in what is expected to be the last live export shipment from the Kimberley this year.
Cattle ships will continue to be loaded in southern Western Australia, as well as Darwin in the Northern Territory and Townsville in Queensland, as exporters look to supply Indonesia's demand for 100,000 to 150,000 head before the end of the year.
Kimberley Ports Authority CEO, Kevin Schellack, said it had been another good year for the live cattle trade out of the Broome.
