Blackall Saleyards & Transit Centre

The iconic Blackall Saleyards, established in 1968, is situated in the heart of western Queensland's cattle country. Today the facility is the major selling centre in Western Queensland. 

Drawing cattle from a vast geographical area, over 130,000 head of cattle pass through these yards each year.

The regular Thursday sales commence at 8.30am and includes a monthly weaner & store sale. These sales are well supported by all major processors, feedlots and re-stockers.

The Blackall Saleyards are both EU and Organic accredited, boosting a modern weighing facility, bull selling ring and 2 bay washdown area.

Visitors can experience the action of live selling from the purpose built viewing platform. A country style canteen operates during sales.

The Blackall Saleyards has every cattleman's needs covered.
