Australian Cows in Lampung

A little factoid just out of Lampung!

The province of Lampung has imported some USD 116.5 million worth of Australian "pedigree" cows during 2007. Unfortunately, for bean counters there were no figures released in terms of how many head of cattle this was but rather the more useful figure of that the imported cows weighed a collective 67,737 tons.

For those against the live export of animals this will surely be an issue of concern. But for Australian farmers, particularly those breeding pedigree cows, the Indonesian market looks like it may continue to be a profitable one!
