Australian goatmeat exports registered considerable year-on-year growth in October, up 11%, to 3,297 tonnes swt – 8% higher than the five-year average for the month.  

Underpinning the overall rise in October, volumes to Australia’s largest goat export market, the US, surged 41% on year-ago levels, to 2,112 tonnes swt, while China recorded a near four-fold increase year-on-year, to 224 tonnes swt.
