Summary

The information provided in this study illustrates the need for considered policy debate regarding the live export industry. The effect of any significant change to the industry would fall disproportionately to regional areas. In addition, the short to medium term impacts would be felt by all livestock producers across Australia, as livestock prices would fall in response to additional supply on the domestic market.
