A national livestock exporter says it will be sending 200 breeding heifers to Indonesia on a 747 jumbo jet.
The purebred Brahman breeders, from Bunda Station in the Victoria River District, are all less than six months' pregnant, and will go to an Indonesian government farm to help improve the genetics of the local stock.
But Angus Grieve, from Lembiru Livestock, says there'll be no inflight movies for the animals.
"They're going cattle class unfortunately," he said.
"So they're loaded into wooden crates at the airport terminal and then from those crates they get loaded directly into cargo hold of the aircraft.
"So it's just a 747 cargo plane, so it's just a big empty hull."
