Kempsey Regional Saleyards infrastructure upgrade

Summary

Kempsey Shire Council is undertaking a major infrastructure upgrade at Kempsey Regional Saleyards, ensuring the facility's future as a competitive regional saleyard for the Mid North Coast.

The upgrade will provide an improved facility for local cattle vendors and buyers, including a yard roof, kiosk, amenities, office, paving, additional cattle yard, seating and landscaping.

Funding

Council has been granted $6,331,001 under the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund to upgrade infrastructure at the saleyards.

Background

Council maintains and operates the Kempsey Regional Saleyards, located on Saleyards Road at West Kempsey.

Sales and operations are carried out by licensed stock and station agents Kempsey Stock and Land.

The saleyards allow buyers and sellers from across the region and throughout New South Wales to generate income and undertake herd development activities. These sales also support the wholesale and retail sectors of the Kempsey community and provide broad economic and social benefits. Read more about Agribusiness in the Macleay Valley.
