A major move by several prominent Victorian stock agents and cattle breeders to switch saleyards ahead of Pakenham's imminent closure has contributed to a mega yarding at Yea.


Elders yarded 4064 cattle at the Yea saleyards on Friday, May 31, with close to 50 per cent of the yarding made up of cattle that would have previously gone under the hammer at Pakenham.


Several feature consignments from the Yarra Valley and Gippsland headlined the sale, with cattle trucked from as far as Dargo and Caldermeade for the last autumn store sale.
