Wodonga saleyard is set to move, following the City Council’s approval of a planning application.
Regional Infrastructure Pty Ltd is looking to build a new $24m centre on a fresh site at Barnawatha North, 20km west of Wodonga. This company leases the current facility at Bandiana on the eastern outskirts of Wodonga since 2008.
I’m told that the current Wodonga yards put through over 200,000 cattle each year, but the new site is intended to have a capacity for 270,000.
Regional Infrastructure Pty Ltd also operates the Tamworth Regional Livestock Exchange, the Central Tablelands Livestock Exchange at Carcoar west of Bathurst, the Central Victorian Livestock Exchange at Delacombe (south west of Ballarat) and the Central Queensland Livestock Exchange at Gracemere (south west of Rockhampton).
