The Shepparton Regional Saleyard (SRSY) is a Council owned facility for the purpose of facilitating a livestock market. Council has outsourced day to day management of the facility to a private contractor; and sale days are managed by the Goulburn Valley Stock Agents Association.
Council’s role is to support the management and maintenance of the facility to ensure it continues to meet required standards for conducting livestock sales, animal welfare and OH&S for employees and visitors. This includes the ongoing maintenance of pens, yards and walkways, cleaning of pens, provision of soft fall, maintenance of ramps and truck wash, and general grounds maintenance. The facility also hosts a 24 hour truck wash service for livestock transport vehicles.
The number of livestock sold through the Shepparton Saleyards remains strong following the construction of new selling facilities in 2014/2015 and 2015/2016.
This project is to replace pens in the original livestock pens structure which have been identified as suffering corrosion damage and must be replaced to ensure the safety of the animals, visiting public, stock agents, and saleyard staff.
Works will be completed in two stages to allow operation of the Saleyards:
Overall project completion is anticipated by Early-June 2021. The project's scope of works has increased to include a concrete slab under the stock pens and a waste collection pipe.
