14,244 cattle were exported from Darwin Port in March (no buffalo for the month), bringing the 2022 first quarter total to 41,489 livestock (cattle and buffalo), all of which have been shipped to Indonesia.
See below some historical Darwin export totals via DAWE I’ve pulled together to provide context for the current volumes.
Please note a consignment of approximately 1100 feeder buffalo were also shipped on Saturday (April 2). As such, they are not captured in the Jan – March numbers below. Counting this latest order makes for an estimated total to date of about 2300 buffalo (TBC officially) exported for the calendar year thus far, confirms it has been a strong start to 2022 and the positive export momentum we have seen in 2020 and 2021 continues to build.
