Hughenden Saleyards

The Hughenden Saleyards are located southwest of town on McLaren Street. The yard has access to both road and rail transport and is a cattle tick clearing facility. Flinders Shire Council are Trustees of the Clearing dip and clearing of all stock is organised by the Manager.

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 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.

The Saleyards includes an NLIS race, weighing scales and dip facilities. Please refer to Council's Fees and Charges for Saleyards fees.

5M 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.
