Saleyards

Last updated 14 October 2017

According to A Review and Analysis of Sale-yards Marketing in Australia, there are 210 sale-yards across Australia, mostly situated in NSW, VIC and QLD. Traditionally sale-yards have been designed for small butcher businesses or pubs to buy animals for backyard slaughter and sell as meat products to the consumers. In modern times their prime purpose is for moving and selling large quantities of animals from farmers to abattoirs that don’t have existing direct farm contracts or killing beyond their contracts. 19 of the 32 million sheep and 6 of the 8 million cattle per year go through these facilities every year. They often also trade calves, poultry and horses.
