Well, as predicted cattle have started to be culled.

The owners of a Western Australian cattle station say they are being forced to cull about 3,000 cattle in the wake of the ban on live exports to Indonesia.

Australia's live cattle trade with Indonesia was suspended last month after public outrage at footage of cruelty to cattle in some Indonesian abattoirs.

But Nico Botha from Moola Bulla Station near Halls Creek in the Kimberley says they will have to start shooting the animals on his property tomorrow.

Mr Botha says there are currently 25,000 head of cattle on his property and those numbers need to be reduced because there is not enough natural grass to feed them all.

I really start to loose faith in humanity in situations like this, I am finding it harder to eat meat all the time, how can someone knowingly support this type of abuse. The tables shall be turned!

Get over yourselves people....they are cattle...not humans.

They are bred for human consumption.

The industry supports so many people in employment.

Now with the swing of a pen the primeminister (if you can call her that) has destroyed a major export business and the livelihoods of numerous families.

Whether you agree or disagree with the way the animals were treated, the simple fact remains that our government could have approached this entire issue with more brains than they have shown themselves to have, and put in place countermeasures to eliminate such cruel practices without the need to immediately suspend further exports.

Shame on this government.....

Your reasoning is severely flawed, this type of abuse and earning an honest living do not go hand in hand. While you agree with this type of behaviour, most of use do not.
