The Euroa Saleyards stage-two is complete and open for business
THE Euroa Saleyards was official re- opened last month, after the Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford unveiled the completed stage two of the saleyards redevelopment project.
The Euroa Saleyards is a major cattle- selling centre for the region, with each of the 14 annual sale days generating up to $ 2 million in sales.
The upgraded works, which had a total spend of $ 500,000, will safeguard the sustainability of the saleyards into the future.
The Stage Two upgrade included:
improve the transport of cattle between the roofed pens, holding yards, loading bays and scales;
to cover 32 pens and the scales area;
vation measures including full stormwater capture for reuse within the facility;
floor in the office/ meeting room, and
fice including air- condition and vinyl flooring.
The upgrades ensure the saleyards meet European Un- ion accreditation standards, which then hopes to increase the livestock sale numbers each year.
The Labor Government supported the Strathbogie Shire to deliver the project, in consultation with the Saleyards committee and other user groups
“Upgrading the Euroa Saleyards ensures more than 38,000 cattle can pass through the saleyards, while also improving critical infrastructure,” Minister Pulford said.
“This upgrade is great news for local producers potential and great news for jobs.”
