Global Livestock

To meet the high standards required for live export, Whangara Global Livestock works with breeding associations to inspect the animals in Pre-Export Isolation. To be approved for export, animals must be free from deformities in feet, joints or jaws, and have a good leg and shoulder structure, a healthy sheath and reproductive organs, as well as a good temperament and other traits.
