Warwick Saleyards operate two livestock auctions every week for both cattle and sheep. The facilities are completely inadequate in terms of animal welfare. There is very little shade and animals are often left for hours in the hot sun, in crowded pens without access to water.
The Southern Downs Regional Council is currently looking at alternatives, acknowledging that the facilities are nearing the end of their operational life. It is unacceptable that they continue to operate these saleyards until they can meet basic animal welfare standards. Please email the CEO and voice your concerns.
