INDONESIAN abattoirs have undergone some significant changes since the ban on live export to Indonesia was implemented last year.

Farm Weekly's Tyson Cattle travelled to Indonesia on the MV Ocean Swagman courtesy of the Wellard Group to report on these changes.

"Prior to departing Perth on my way to Darwin to travel on a live export vessel to Indonesia, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect," Tyson said.

"I had heard a lot about the standards of shipments, transportation, feedlots, abattoirs and wet markets from industry people but nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to experience."
