CANBERRA - Australia's government lifted a month-long ban on live cattle exports to neighboring Indonesia on Wednesday, saying it was satisfied livestock would not be mistreated and the $320 million trade could resume.

"I've lifted the suspension so that we can support and continue to support an industry that is vital, that is good for the Australian economy, and mutually beneficial trade for both Australia and Indonesia," Agriculture Joe Ludwig told reporters in Canberra.
