    Background: A herd of 1,085 head of breeding beef cattle arrived in Taiwan on Wednesday (9 May), imported by the Taiwan Sugar Corporation (TSC) from australia. The cattle will go to a TSC breeding cattle ranch at Pingtung, in South Taiwan.

    The cattle were accompanied by a flock of 199 breeding sheep, for another breeding ranch at Chiayi.

    Cattle-ranching is new industry in Taiwan: last year the island imported 1600 head of breeding beef cattle, mainly from Australia and new Zealand. Sheep-ranching is being established as a new industry with this first shipment of breeding stock. The TSC, a government-owned enterprise, is running both undertakings.

    Another shipment of livestock to arrive in Taiwan last week (Thursday, 10 MAY), was a group of six Jordanian racehorses, a present from Crown Prince Hassan to Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek. The Arba thoroughbreds include one stallion and five mares; the stallion, a six-year-old. is said to carry a price tag of 150-thousand U.S. dollars. All six horse are to go to a breeding farm.
