PGA WELCOMES DECISION TO UPGRADE REGIONAL SALEYARDS

2010-12-15

The Pastoralists and Graziers’ Association (PGA) Livestock Committee chairman Mr Digby Stretch welcomed this morning’s announcement of the Government’s decision to upgrade regional saleyards.

 

He said, “it was a timely announcement that would have positive spill over benefits to local businesses as well as local producers.”

 

Mr Stretch said that, “livestock producers needed access to modern saleyards with high      standards of environmental management, animal welfare and occupational health and safety.”

 

“Well operated state-of-the-art facilities will encourage more competition and provide a net benefit to the state and regional areas through renewed buyer interest, increased buyer numbers and more suitable presentation of animals, leading to increased competition and better returns for all concerned.”

 

“The PGA endorses the government’s support of shire owned facilities by providing funding to retire debt at the Mt Barker saleyard for cattle, as well as facilitating private development options for the Boyanup saleyard for cattle”.
