All animals have been pre-screened for export qualification.
All of the animals (except Lot 9) have been tested clear and are eligible for export collection to all countries that have protocols with Australia.
Lot 9 – PWYP22T1454A – is positive for IBR, and not eligible for export to EU and China.
If collecting for export to the EU, China, and USA – all animals from the North: Lots 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32 – will need to be South of the Bluetongue line for an isolation period of 60 days before export collection. This will result in an extension of the isolation period and extra testing.
However, this 60-day period counts while other isolation periods are happening. For example, if animals are sent straight to an approved collection center:
EU export protocols take – 45 days. The animals will only need an additional 15 days until they can be collected for export to the EU
USA export protocols take – 30 days. The animals will only need an additional 30 days until they can be collected for export to the USA
