Buffalo export numbers

Good morning,

A total of 1440 buffalo shipped from Darwin in September, pushing year-to-date volumes to 8275 of which two-thirds have been feeders to Indonesia. Annual totals for 2020 and 2021 both nudged 11,000 head, which seems again within reach with three months remaining for 2022.

Cattle export numbers from Darwin and other northern ports for 2022 are a long way behind historic averages, making the strong live buffalo numbers particularly encouraging.

Kind regards,
