Live export is the term for the commercial transnational transport of cattle. The trade involves a number of nations, with Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ’s live export sector ranking among the top exporters globally.
Depending on the ship type, live animals may be transported as cargo as long as the necessary rules are followed. When using ferries or other short sea crossings, this kind of transportation is more frequent and often only involves a few animals. Ships known as “livestock carriers” are dedicated to transporting huge quantities of live animals and their accompanying supplies (food, water, sawdust bedding, medication, etc.). The length of a voyage on a cattle carrier might range from three to four weeks.
Although many animals have been imported in this way, domesticated sheep and cattle breeds are by far the most prevalent. In the second part of the 20th century, livestock transporters carried millions of sheep and thousands of cattle. Other domesticated species that have been carried in smaller numbers include horses, camels, deer, goats, and, at least once, ostriches.
In order to lower the ʀɪsᴋ of the introduction of contagious ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇs, national authorities that permit the export or import of live animals strictly supervise and watch over the ships and related areas of commerce.
