Cattle yards now a reality
NEW cattle yards at the Mundubbera showground have long been on the show society’s wish list, but thanks to a $31,134 Sustainable Communities grant from QGC and many hours of voluntary work, they have become a reality.
Cattle and horses filled the new yards at the weekend for the first time for the annual bullarama.
Vicki Ketchell from QGC said the money had been well spent and she hoped the community would benefit from the stainless steel yards for years to come.
“The existing 50-year-old timber cattle yards were in poor repair and a risk to the safety of users and animals,” Ms Ketchell said.
“The new yards will provide a safe, strong and secure facility for the Mundubbera Show Society and community to hold social and fundraising activities.”
Community volunteers put in some long, hot hours to build the yards and Mundubbera Show Society treasurer Gayle Pott thanked them all, especially Joe Payne, Marty Barbour, Cameron and Dudley Pott and Kev Harper.
“It’s great that the yards were finished in time for the bullarama,” Ms Ketchell said. “I’m sure they’ll be a great community asset.”
