About the industry

The livestock export industry is an important part of Australia's vibrant and growing pastoral industry-it earned $1.012 billion in 2010 and it underpins the employment of around 10,000 people in rural and regional Australia.

Australia leads the world in animal welfare practices. The Australian Government does not tolerate cruelty towards animals and will not compromise on animal welfare standards. Our ongoing involvement in the livestock export trade provides an opportunity to influence animal welfare conditions in importing countries.
