Cat­tle port push

Pilbara News - - News - Brad Thomp­son

Lead­ing pas­toral­ists are be­hind a push to use port fa­cil­i­ties at Onslow for live cat­tle ship­ments amid lin­ger­ing doubts about where the in­dus­try fits in with iron ore and salt at Port Hed­land.

Cat­tle pro­duc­ers are tar­get­ing the Wheat­stone ma­te­ri­als of­fload­ing wharf, built dur­ing con­struc­tion of Chevron’s gi­ant LNG and do­mes­tic gas project.

The An­drew For­rest-owned Min­deroo Sta­tion is com­mit­ted to build­ing cat­tle yards and a feed­lot to sup­port its oper­a­tions and other in­dus­try play­ers if Ash­bur­ton port is ap­proved for live ex­port.
