SEP QTR KEY FIGURES
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
An error has been detected in the March quarter 2005 and June quarter 2005 issues of this product which led to an understatement of the live cattle export figures in Table 21. The figures understated were those for September quarter 2004. These errors have been corrected in this issue. Figures for other quarters and for other tables were not affected.
There are no forthcoming changes.
