The new Beaudesert Saleyards are handily located five minutes outside of the town’s western side on 2563 Beaudesert-Boonah Road, Beaudesert Qld 4285.
The yards have the capacity to accommodate 1000 head of cattle in comfort, with the design heavily focused on providing improved animal welfare outcomes and a safer working environment for staff and the public.
Located on a 12 hectare site, the Saleyards’ pens each contain in-built water troughs, while 11 drafting pens located away from the selling centre are designed to minimise stress on stock and make handling easier for both man and beast.
Raised, covered walkways with ramps give the buyers added comfort and ease of access around the facility. Multi-tiered, non-slip walkways that circle the complete perimeter of the selling centre give auctioneers a superior view of the sale, while handrails provide added safety and security.
Bartholomew & Co draw cattle from all over the State and sell to a highly competitive buyer panel comprising restockers, backgrounders and lot feeders.
Under new Biosecurity Legislation, cattle can now be cleared for movement into tick-free areas from Beaudesert Saleyards.
