Government to suspend live cattle exports
Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig has confirmed that Australia is suspending live exports to Indonesia until safeguards are adopted to stop the brutal slaughter of animals.
Senator Ludwig says the ban could be in place for up to six months and will apply until the welfare of cattle sent to Indonesia can be guaranteed.
"I want to work with both the industry, the Indonesian government and through my department to ensure that we can do this as quickly as possible. The suspension is there for up to six months to allow for time for this to occur," he told AM this morning.
