A very strong point of difference in the Lembiru operation is its ability to fully integrate every key element of the export chain This can only be achieved by a company with a total supply chain experience Lembiru is not a farming company exporting livestock, neither is it just a shipping company or freight forwarder.

Livestock Sourcing

Depending on the type of livestock required, Lembiru has three available sources of supply:

• From properties under management by Lembiru
• From joint venture operations with livestock breeders throughout Australia,
• From strategic alliances with large-scale producers and suppliers of sheep, cattle and goats.

Lembiru has its own export quarantine facilities where cattle, sheep and goats are prepared less than three hours from a major port. This level of integration enables Lembiru to closely manage
The selection and preparation of live stock, ensuring that the best possible quality is delivered to buyers.
Lembiru is able to meet the detailed specifications of all clients. Clients gain great benefit from the fact that Lembiru director. Adam Armstrong, lived and worked within the Asian livestock industries for in excess of five years and knows the exact conditions to which stock must adapt.
On many occasions international buyers may choose to visit Australia to select their own stock. They are welcomed and escorted by a lembiru director to seller’s farms on predetermined program arranged by lembiru.
Pre Shipmen Processing
Lembiru quarantines and prepares export condiment on a company owned property near Dalby in Queensland. The company also fully controls a dedicated quarantine depot near Shepparton in Victoria. These farms are within 3 hours of Brisbane and Melbourne international airports respectively.
Animals are source and must be delivered to these properties well before shipment dates. Health testing and other protocol requirements are completed, and constant monitoring allows Lembiru to detect and remove any unhealthy or problem animals.
