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.

    On the one hand, drought has been hurting their stocks, and now live export bans due to evidence of animal cruelty abroad have affected their incomes.

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