The exports of two boatloads of cattle to Turkey and Libya has been confirmed by the ICSA beef chairman, Edmund Graham.

The beef chairman for the ICSA, Edmund Graham, has confirmed that two boats of live exports will be sent in the coming weeks. He made the announcement yesterday and urged farmers to bargain hard.

“Factories are anxious for cattle at the moment so there is room to bargain hard,” he said.

He confirmed that these boats will leave towards the end of this month.

“Two boats will also leave the country towards the end of the month, one going to Libya and the

other to Turkey. Cattle are actively being sought by live exporters to fill these contracts so there are

options there.”, he said.

Graham conformed the type of cattle sought for both trips, with Turkey requiring weanlings and Libya seeking Friesian bulls.

“Unlike previous contracts, this contract for Turkey is for heavier forward store cattle rather than the 300kg weanlings which were a feature of previous contracts. For Libya the focus is more on Friesian bulls around the 400kg mark.”, he confirmed.
