Live sheep due to be taken to the Middle East are in limbo in a West Australian feedlot after the federal government suspended the exporter's licence.

The Department of Agriculture says Emanuel Exports' next steps are "a commercial matter" and potential options include processing domestically and transferring the sheep to exporters holding current live export licences.

One exporter, Livestock Shipping Services, is currently focusing on South America while it reviews its sheep business from Australia to the northern hemisphere, best store leaving another major player, Wellard, as a potential transfer option.
