ANIMAL WELFARE

Yea Saleyards adheres to upholding the highest possible animal welfare standards

Yea Saleyards adheres to upholding the highest possible animal welfare standards and always aims to comply with the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Livestock at Saleyards and Depots.

Yea Saleyards requires all vendors and transporters consigning or delivering livestock to the Yea Saleyards Facility to comply with the Industry Standards as stated in the MLA document Is it Fit to Load?

Livestock will not be accepted at the Yea Saleyards that fails to comply with the Is it Fit to Load? guidelines. All injured, diseased or moribund livestock will be destroyed immediately, and relevant charges applied to the vendor through their agent. Vendors should check with their preferred agent for the current schedule of fees and charges to euthanise and dispose of livestock at Yea Saleyards.

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 and transporters familiarise themselves with this publication.
