The Hughenden Saleyards are located south west of town on McLaren Street. The yard has access to both road and rail transport and is a cattle tick clearing facility. Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI) own the clearing dip and the third party provider organises the clearing of all stock.
Bookings are preferred at our clearing facility with a minimum of 24 hours notice required. We do offer a 24/7 operation but please keep in mind the yards are not permanently staffed. Bookings are restricted to daylight hours. Operating hours at clearing facilities may be extended for scheduled events.
To help provide for the efficient running of the Saleyards Complex and ensure the availability of yard space for cattle, Flinders Shire Council asks graziers, agents and other users of the Saleyards Complex, to give twenty-four (24) hours notice to the Saleyards' Manager. This includes booking cattle in for dipping, weighing, NLIS reading or general yard use. Exceptions will be made for emergencies, where users have made arrangements with the Saleyards' Manager.

Flinders Livestock Services has stockfeed on hand for all spelling and feeding needs at competitive rates. Please feel free to discuss these rates with the Saleyards Manger dependant on individual needs.
Due to unauthorised hay being utilised for stockfeed at the Hughenden Saleyards in the past, Council has authorised the Saleyards Manager to destroy any stockfeed that is not accompanied by a "Stock Feed Acceptability Statement". Council seeks your cooperation in providing the appropriate statement to the Saleyards Manager when you provide your own stock feed.
