Agriculture Minister Alannah MacTiernan is calling for expressions of interest to meet the livestock needs of South West producers ahead of the expected closure of the Boyanup Saleyards in 2021.

Ms MacTiernan said the EOI process would identify areas in which the Government could help in the development of a replacement facility.

“We made an election commitment to proceed with a replacement for the Boyanup Saleyards and we’re getting on with delivering for livestock producers in the South West,” she said.

“The McGowan Government is committed to facilitating a replacement by the private or local government sectors.”
