Casterton Livestock Saleyards is a facility owned and operated by the Glenelg Shire Council. These Saleyards are renowned nationwide for offering premium quality local stock in an historic setting.

The Saleyard hosts 8 to 10 store cattle sales each year as well as a summer sheep sale.

Three Stock Agents each conduct several large premium store weaner cattle sales during January each year.

The Casterton Saleyards are EU Accredited and NSQA Accredited and offer NLIS Scanning with pre-sale weighing of store cattle.
