Australia resumes exports of live cattle and sheep to Iran

Australia is to resume exports of live cattle and sheep to Iran after 30 years, said the country's agriculture minister, Barnaby Joyce, on Wednesday. The goal is to restore competitiveness to a sector that turns over AUS$ 930 million (US$ 860 million) a year and which has been impacted by concerns for animal welfare.
The resumption of sales to Iran comes at a time of strong demand from the Middle East for proteins. In March, Australia had already resumed trade with Egypt and Bahrain after having adopted measures related to animal health.
