All about
Animal Welfare

Mareeba Saleyards prides itself on upholding the highest possible animal welfare standards, and aims to comply at all times with the Code of Practice for Animals at Saleyards. It is our goal that all livestock will leave the premises in as fit or fitter state than they arrive, therefore, only cattle that are fit for sale can be accepted at this facility. All injured or moribund stock will be destroyed immediately, and relevent charges applied to the vendor.


The publication "Is it Fit to Load?" clearly sets out the minimum requirements for producers and transporters when consigning livestock. It is recommended that all producers familiarize themselves with this publication.
