Case Study 2: Katherine and the Port of Darwin, Northern Territory. Katherine is a location for cattle producers and trucking companies, a fodder cubing mill, fodder producers and helimustering services. The live export industry provides a significant level of throughput at the Port of Darwin and an array of handling and inspections services in an around Darwin itself. Case Study 3: Broome and north west Western Australia. The Port of Broome draws cattle from the Pilbara, east and west Kimberley and the Northern Territory. The region is also served by the Port of Wyndham. In the absence of the live export trade marketing, options for producers in this region are limited. Case Study 4: Dairy cattle in southern Australia, in particular Portland, Victoria. Live exports have provided support to dairy farmers during a downturn in the industry. Markets in China and Mexico have been providing an option for dairy producers to diversify income. Case Study 5: Goat exports mainly from southern Australia and have been based initially on feral goats. The industry is moving towards the export of domesticated goats in eastern Australia. Case studies were specifically designed to document the qualitative dimensions of the industry. The consultations also provided quantitative data for the economic analysis. 1.2.4 Regional and national economic modelling The basic modelling platform was provided by regional models from the National Institute of Economic and Industry Research (NIEIR). The models are anchored in specific regional input- output tables and are integration models with employment functions, consumption factors and export functions. The input-output framework translates demand into industry activity. The general integrated model was modified for the live cattle and live sheep industries at the regional level. The industries were explicitly merged into the regional models by incorporating the information from each of the industries surveyed.

Value of the live export industry Page 3 of 64 1.2.5 Forecasts and domestic linkages The forecasts for the various sectors of the industry were assessed at an industry workshop held in Sydney in November 2005. Various factors affecting supply and demand were examined and their potential impact over the medium term assessed. The linkages between the live export industry and the domestic markets for cattle and sheep were also examined in this workshop. Further to this, the Global Meat Industry (GMI) model, developed by Centre for International Economics (CIE), was used to estimate the medium term impacts of a cessation of live exports on farm gate prices and the gross value of the sheep and cattle markets.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
