Fortnightly livestock sales
THE SOUTH Burnett Regional Livestock Exchange (SBRLX) commonly known as the Murgon Saleyards from June 4 will change its sale structure to fortnightly fat and store sales.
SBRLX Queensland manager Nigel Ferguson said the change from weekly to fortnightly sales comes with a number of other positive changes.
“We have implemented a new lower yard fee structure to help reduce costs to producers,” Mr Ferguson said.
The latest in animalwelfare standards are being implemented across the selling complex.
“There is water in all yards at all times and a smoother weighing system which will help reduce stress on animals,” he said.
“The complex also boasts big selling pens and large cable holding and feeding yards for spelling of cattle.
“This meant there are new and improved catwalks in place, a fully enclosed plunge dip and new drafting facilities on and off the scales.”
On sale day buyers and sell- ers can take advantage of advanced data processing and NLIS management which allows them to obtain report in many convenient formats.
This system is supported by the fast and efficient-weighing system.
As well as being a popular cattle trading centre, the complex is also an accredited tick clearing centre offering dip- ping, feeding and inspection of cattle in preparation to cross the tick line.
With management committed to best practice and complying with industry regula- tions all in one central location what reason is there not to sell at SBRLX at Murgon.
