Kiwis could fill cattle export gap to Indonesia | WORLD News
New Zealand already exports meat to Indonesia, but live animal exports have been banned since 2007.
Agriculture Minister David Carter said there is a possibility NZ can pick up some of the shortfall in the Indonesian market.
"We are a substantial supplier of processed meat to Indonesia and we would be keen to increase that market but under no circumstances would we consider sending live animals for slaughter to Indonesia."
However the demand for live cattle exports from Australia forced many processing plants here to close.
In the meantime the Gillard government is facing mounting pressure to follow New Zealand and ban live animal exports entirely.
