China imports about 1,500 breeding goats from Australia

Date: 30 Apr 2020

Northwest China's Gansu province has imported 1,494 goats from Australia, the first batch of breeding goats imported from Australia by the province this year, local customs said.

A charter plane carrying the goats worth $2.13 million landed at the Lanzhou Zhongchuan International Airport about 67 km North of downtown Lanzhou, the provincial capital, Monday.

The goats will be quarantined for 45 days after customs inspection, according to Wang Xiaobo, head of the airport customs under jurisdiction of Lanzhou Customs.

The import of the dairy goats, including the breed of Saanen with a high fertility rate, long lactation period and high milk yield, will be helpful for the province's animal husbandry development.
