Ocean Drover docks at Timaru to load thousands of cows bound for China

The world's largest livestock carrier arrived in the Port of Timaru on Tuesday afternoon, but the company responsible for the shipment of cows to China could not say when the thousands of cows would be loaded onto the ship.

However, by 6.45pm there several stock trucks were pulled up close to the Ocean Drover, with a ramp in place for the loading of stock.

It was not clear whether or not stock were actually being loaded yet.  

The Ocean Drover docked at PrimePort Timaru on Tuesday afternoon, ready to transport 6600 dairy cows to China.
