$6.6 million Dubbo Saleyards upgrade officially unveiled

The $6.6 million upgrade of the Dubbo Regional Livestock Markets was made possible by the $3.29 million contribution from the Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund, which was matched dollar for dollar by the Dubbo Regional Council.

The project has created jobs and is contributing to the growth of the region’s cattle industry, underpinning the state’s agricultural sector. The saleyards supports 245 fulltime jobs and the upgrade has created a further 22.

Better and bigger livestock facilities will support some of the region’s major industries.
