Why can’t we just process livestock in Australia and send overseas as boxed meat?

There is strong demand for both chilled and live animals from many countries that Australia exports to. These two trades are often complimentary due to catering to different demographics in the importing countries. Chilled meat only has a shelf life of 70 days and caters to more affluent demographics because of the cost of importing chilled and frozen meat is much more expensive than fresh meat from wet markets.
