HELPING HAND FROM FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO COMPLETE INVERELL SALEYARD UPGRADE

The redevelopment of the Inverell Saleyards is powering forward.

This week, the project has been given a $2.5-million boost from the federal government.

“This assists in the construction of a $7.5-million facility which assists with the commerce and bringing jobs, further jobs to Inverell,” Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce.

The expansion is on track to be complete by the end of the year.

It will allow an increase in cattle through the facility – up to 120,000 each year – and drive down costs to local producers.

This assists in keeping Inverell a major selling centre. The reduced distance means reduced costs for local farmers,” Mr Joyce said.
