CQLX to go on show with tour

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

THE Cen­tral Queens­land Live­stock Ex­change will be part of the Beef Aus­tralia 2018 West­pac prop­erty tours pro­gram on Thurs­day, May 10.

CQLX is part of the RLX port­fo­lio which is a net­work of modern and in­no­va­tive live­stock sell­ing fa­cil­i­ties that cur­rently han­dles over 754,000 cat­tle and 2,350,000 sheep an­nu­ally.

This half day tour will give par­tic­i­pants an in­sight into the op­er­a­tions and man­age­ment of a multi-mil­lion-dol­lar sale yard with sev­eral key stake­hold­ers be­ing rep­re­sented – buy­ers, ven­dors, trans­ports, agents.

The key ar­eas of fo­cus on the tour to CQLX in­clude low stress live­stock han­dling, safe work prac­tices and modern in­fra­struc­ture.

Beef Aus­tralia Prop­erty Tour Chair­man, Scott McCart­ney, be­lieves the tour to CQLX will pro­vide a great show­case of this sec­tion of the in­dus­try’s sup­ply chain.

“The auc­tion sys­tem forms an in­te­gral part of the sup­ply chain in the beef in­dus­try, and as such needs to be in­no­va­tive and ef­fi­cient in its op­er­a­tion,” he said.

“The Beef Expo Tour pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate this.”
