WATCH: Fly-through of the new $14 million Casino saleyards

THE $14 million upgrade to the Casino saleyards will mark a new era for livestock sales.

Richmond Valley Council says it will create a nationally significant saleyard complex which will be modern, comfortable, efficient and safe.

Efficiencies created through the upgrade will give livestock agents an opportunity to present cattle to a very high standard, and will ensure better animal welfare and management and better safety for both people and animals.

Have a look at what the complex will look like at the completion of stage two:

Some key points include:

  • 10,200sqm floor area
  • Two semi automatic four-way drafts and eight new drafting pens
  • 12 new dual purpose mustering or selling pens
  • 50 new selling pens
  • Rail, gate and trough upgrade
  • 150mm of soft flooring throughout selling and mustering pens
  • New LED lighting and IT fitout
  • Dust suppression sprays
  • Stormwater roof collection
  • Security fencing
  • CCTV coverage across the site.
