Australian ranchers urged the Australian government to lift its ban on live cattle exports to Indonesia as Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig held talks aimed at restarting trade of the animals to the nation’s biggest market.

Northern Territory Chief Minister Paul Henderson and ranchers met today with government ministers to urge the resumption of trade. Australia on June 8 banned live cattle exports to Indonesia for as long as six months after a television program showed animals being mistreated.

“We don’t want to lay off staff but it may come to that,” Emily Brett, who runs 10,000 head of cattle in the Northern Territory, told reporters in Canberra. “We’re hoping live exports will resume as soon as possible so we can get some income.”

The government banned live cattle exports to Indonesia, which buys about 60 percent of Australia’s shipments, after the program caused a public outcry over the treatment of the animals. Indonesian exports contributed A$319 million ($338 million) to the economy in 2010, according to Meat and Livestock Australia.

Ludwig yesterday gave the Indonesian government a draft set of rules on welfare standards, including encouraging but not insisting upon stunning animals before they are killed, a spokesman from his office said.

“I would encourage all participants to put in place supply chain arrangements so we can keep this industry for the longer term,” Ludwig told reporters in Jakarta last night after meeting Indonesia’s agriculture and trade ministers, according to a transcript.

The trial is ongoing.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
