How well do the livestock travel on the ship?

Livestock travel considerably well on the vessels and in most cases will even put on weight due to being comfortable and content in their environment, with consistent feeding and access to fresh, clean water. Most of the livestock will adapt to their new environment within the first day or so and start to settle into a consistent routine. Most exporters aim to have a weight gain on the cattle between Australia and their overseas destination port. The cattle from Northern Australia are tough animals well suited to the South East Asian climate leading to an extremely high success rate on voyages.
