How are sheep prepared on farm, prior to being exported?

When an  Australian exporter and overseas importer have made a contract, livestock buyers representing the exporter will approach livestock agents and farmers to fill the specific order. This order will specify the type and class of sheep required and outline the requirements farmers must meet to ensure sheep are prepared for export appropriately.  Livestock buyers will inspect the sheep on-farm and select those suitable for export.  They are then transported to the pre-export quarantine feedlots.
