MORE than 1 million head of live cattle have been exported since the Abbott government took office.

The exports represented a 54% increase between September last year and April this year, compared with the same six-month period the previous year.

Lamb exports rose 13% over the same period to 226,306 tonnes and beef and veal exports were up 18% year on year, to 103,257 tonnes in 2013-14.
