Casterton Livestock Saleyards
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 accredited by both the European Union and The National Saleyard Quality Assurance (NSQA), and offer the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) Scanning with pre-sale weighing of store cattle.
Facilities available at the Saleyards include:

Natural woodchip soft-flooring is used throughout the Saleyards offering excellent protection against lameness, especially with weaned animals. Private use of the cattle crush is also available and specific sections of the yards for drafting and loading cattle, can be arranged following payment of the relevant fee.
