Gunnedah Saleyards $17.6M Rebuild - Community Owned

October 5, 2022

Progress continues for our saleyards and it's great to see during the upgrades, the project will bring more jobs to the region by employing more than 80 people throughout the construction period. Once complete, the updated facility will then support the retention of staff at the saleyards, as well as encourage the employment of more staff in the long-term. Fourteen million dollars for the project has come from the state government's Infrastructure and Job Acceleration fund, with the remaining $3.6 million contributed by Gunnedah Shire Council. The funding will deliver a new café, administration facility, truck wash, more workshop sheds and improvements to cattle ramps, gates, fencing and watering systems.
