1900 Irish cattle en route to Libya onboard News 1 livestock carrier

Irish cattle

A consignment of approximately 1,900 heavy Irish bulls is expected to depart for Libya today on-board the dedicated News 1 livestock carrier, according to Agriland.

The group of bulls, consisting of a range of breeds, has been gathered by Supreme Livestock for private Libyan buyers.

The vessel will be loaded under the supervision of Department of Agriculture veterinary officials following guidelines set out in the health certificate agreed between Irish and Libyan officials, Agriland added.

This will be the first shipment of Irish cattle to head to Libya this year. In 2016, some 2,162 Irish cattle were shipped to Libya – an increase of 1,729 on the 433 exported during 2015, Agriland also explained.
