Description
Announced the reopening of trade in feeder and breeding cattle from Australia, following agreement on improved export certification processes for all consignments. In May 2016, Japan suspended live cattle exports from Australia in response to cattle testing positive for BJD in post-arrival quarantine. The strengthened conditions include lifetime traceability for all animals and biosecurity clearance for the property of origin.
