Australian farmers deal with 'cattle crisis'

Farmers say that pressures of both drought and live export bans are hitting them hard.

    Cattle farmers in Australia say their livelihoods are at risk, with multiple pressures from both domestic and international sources.

    Some farmers in Queensland are hoping the solution is at the ballot box.
