AgriLand: 1750 bulls to be shipped from Ireland to Libya
A boatload of bulls will leave Ireland bound for Libya in approximately two weeks, AgriLand has reported.
The consignment of bulls – Friesians, Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and continentals – has been organised by Cork-based exporting company, Curzon Livestock.
The bulls – weighing between 400kg and 460kg – will be shipped via a livestock-carrying vessel which will be loaded with approximately 1,750 bulls. The consignment will set sail from Co. Cork, AgriLand added.
The same exporter hopes that this contract could form the basis of regular and consistent shipments of Irish cattle to Libya in 2019.
