Live export carrier Brahman Express berthed at Prime Port, Timaru.

Animal rights organisation (Save Animals From Expoitation) Safe said the vessel arrived on Thursday, but because the vessel was not listed on the Timaru Port website, it was not known how many animals the vessel intended to export or to what destination.

Safe campaigns officer Mona Oliver said live export "corporations" had exported more cows already this year than in all of 2018, including a consignment of 3383 cows aboard the Yangtze Fortune in September, after the same ship was rejected

from exporting 5000 cows from Australia following a biosecurity breach.
