Australia’s livestock export industry conference – taking innovation, change and animal welfare to the world.
LIVEXchange 2013 Conference was held at Jupiter’s Casino, Townsville from October 30 to November 1 2013.

The Conference provided an opportunity for producers, exporters and the wider sector to gain new insights into the current challenges, demonstrate how it has changed, the future opportunities for the livestock export industry and the plans for future change.
