Goats In Australia
Australia is the world’s largest goat meat exporter but one breeder says there’s also a growing market closer to home in Australia.
Goats arrived in Australia with the First Fleet in 1788 and spread with settlers throughout the country. The original goats were a varied and hardy herd capable of utilizing harsh Australian pastures to produce milk and meat.
Some of the first herd escaped into the wild and have evolved into the unique Australian Rangeland Goat. These goats have since contributed to the development of the modern Australian Cashmere and Angora breeds which have been invaluable to many farmers as they diversify their income. More recently these rangeland goats have become the mainstay of a growing goatmeat industry.
From humble beginnings, the Australian goat industry is continuing to grow and evolve to meet increasing global demand for goat meat, dairy products and fibre.
Live Goat Exports
Australia is recognised globally for its capacity as a supplier of quality live goats. All goats are exported from Australia according to world’s best practice.
In 2011 the Australian Bureau of Statistics, (ABS) reported that 71,895 goats were exported, with the vast majority air freighted to Malaysia.
Traditionally there has been strong demand for goats for breeding purposes, however this has recently declined with demand now largely confined to slaughter animals.
For example Australia, unlike any other country, has animal welfare experts based in importing countries to provide practical training to Stockmen and veterinarians on how to work with, handle and transport Australian animals and to assist in upgrading infrastructure such as abattoirs, ports and feedlots.
Australia is regarded as the world leader in the regulation and management of the export of livestock, regulated by the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock (ASEL). The ASEL covers all aspects of
preparation of livestock for the voyage, from farm through to on board management.
Australia’s commitment to the health and welfare of animals exported live is further strengthened by ESCAS, or the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System. ESCAS requires that Australian animals can only be sent into approved supply chains overseas, designed to ensure the welfare of the animal from delivery in a foreign port to slaughter in an approved abattoir.
