Congratulations UAE – Boer Goats

Congratulations to the UAE and all those involved in importing Australian Boer Goats over the last 7 years, our Australian breeders, UAE importers and clients. The Boer Goat has been well received more recently in the last 36  months, which has seen about 1000s of full blood boer goats and crossbred derivatives delivered to the UAE.  Cluny Livestock Exports are a specialist exporter by air and have been exporting for over 10 years to various locations. In early 2013 we were instrumental in reopening the UAE market for goats. We have a large supply chain including full blood and crossbreds and are involved in various Middle Eastern projects.

The market has evolved a lot in recent years from being all full bloods to the inclusion of crossbreds boers (50-99% boer genetics) which we highly recommend for more commercial breeding operations. The focus on “graded” full blood boers has proven to be popular, however,  our approach is to offer a fully independant assessor rather an Australian boer goat breeder.

Cluny Livestock Exports exported Boer and Dairy goats in 3 shipments between 2008-2009 and the market remained quiet until it was closed due to health protocol issues in months late 2012. We received an inquiry at this time and decided to utilize our contacts to assist in opening the market and after an initial period of 3 months hard work handed over to the Australian and UAE authorities to finalize requirements. The health protocol issue was resolved and the first export of Boer Goats since 2009 was conducted by Cluny Livestock Exports in April 2014 to Fujairah. Since then Cluny Livestock Exports has conducted 3 livestock export shipments of the highest quality Boer Full Blood goats in Australia to the UAE. We anticipate many more shipments happening over the next few months as the market expands in terms of requirements and objectives.

The UAE and Australia have many similarities in terms of climate, depending on the area in Australia. 70% of Australia is considered to be dry and arid with deserts dominating the centre of Australia. Boer goats are ideal for the UAE as they are highly adaptable to the climate.

As a livestock exporter who has been in the UAE market the longest of any exporter involved in boer goats, we are delighted and proud to see the UAE accepting the boer goat into their country. The market will change from being primarily full bloods to hopefully larger scale commercial projects involving crossbred boers and to the show ring with judges of international repute rewarding local breeders for their efforts.

Animal Welfare is of primary concern to us and the goats and alpacas in this shipment all had enough space to lay down sleep during the flight. In addition water was made available in the crates and a special product used to reduce ammonic acid (from urine) within the crates. In ten years of conducting livestock export business we have never experienced any mortalities. A comprehensive post arrival plan was provided to the Government and ongoing support was offered to the importers/farmers who had extensive experience with Alpacas and Boer Goats over many years.

After a nine hour flight all animals arrived safely at Bangkok Airport and were cleared from customs within one hour.

Dorper Sheep Exports

Australian livestock export of sheep covers many breeds for slaughter and breeding purposes. As exporters of only breeding animals by air Dorpers have proven consistently to be the highest performing, most durable and tough of all animals that we have exported to many locations.

The Dorper sheep which came to Australia in embryo form in 1996 has had a huge impact in not only Australia but also in the livestock export markets to which it they have been sent.

This slide show/clip shows these amazing Super Sheep across the globe and shows the quality that Cluny Livestock Exports focuses on for it’s overseas markets. We have extensive technical data about these sheep in terms of meat and the high quality leather they produce, making them a dual product sheep and adding to their profitability.

Australian Lowline Angus Exports

Australian Lowline Angus or miniature Angus, were bred at the Trangie Research Institute in Australia in a project that ended in 1994. The focus of the project was the effect of genetic selection on growth to a yearling stage. The video shows the merits of this wonderful breed on many levels including performance and hybrid vigour in crossbreeding in Thailand and Australia. There are many photos illustrating the quality that this breed exudes. Their docile temperament make them an ideal animal to have on any farm whether here in Australia or overseas.

Cluny Livestock Exports has exported Lowline cattle to the US market and we extensive technical data backing up claims and the merits of these wonderful cattle.

Australian Boer Goat Exports

Australian Boer Goat Exporters are licensed by the Australian Government, compliance to exports standards and animal welfare and care are focus of our business. Contingency planning is an important element of this process including post arrival support in terms of management, nutritional and veterinary care.

Boer goats were introduced to Australia via genetic material in the late 1980s and the live animals were released in the mid 1990s.

The video shows some fine examples of Australian boer goats (full blood), our focus is on exporting quality animals and the impact boers have had worldwide in crossbreeding programs involving Australian boer goats. The upgrade of local goat breeds has been dramatic and positive.

Cluny’s Australian Livestock Export of Goats has focused on the Australian Boer Goat breed as well as dairy goats to markets including Malaysia, New Zealand, UAE and Pakistan.

Australian Dorper Sheep Exports to Malaysia

All exporters of livestock are licensed by the Australian Government, compliance to exports standards and animal welfare and care are focused on in the conducting of our business. Contingency planning is an important element of this process including post arrival support in terms of management, nutritional and veterinary care.

Australian livestock export of sheep covers many breeds for slaughter and breeding purposes. As exporters of only breeding animals by air, Cluny Dorpers have proven consistently to be the highest performing, most durable and toughest  of all animals that we have exported to many countries. Their ability to bounce back from adversity and tough seasons is simply amazing. Cluny Exports in 2007 exported the first Dorper sheep from Australia to Pakistan and their adaptability was simply amazing.

Cluny Exports have been exporting Dorper Sheep to Malaysia for over 8 years and we have always focused on supplying the right sheep for the environment. At a higher cross (6th generation crossbreds) the Dorper will shed it’s hair or grow very little hair in hotter tropical climates. This enables high cross Dorpers to adapt better to the higher humidity of Malaysia and therefore perform to their potential. Dorpers are tough , adaptable, disease resistant, gain weight fast, produce a healthier meat, produce fine leather and are great low maintenance breeders.
