The Saudi government is yet to disclose the reasons for sending back the shipload of livestocks.

The move comes days ahead of the Hajj season and Eid Al-Adha, when livestock demand is high in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is one of the biggest markets for Somali livestock, which has recently removed a suspension on Somali livestock giving a greenlight for importing.  source dhacdo
