Livestock Exchange Fees



East Gippsland Shire Council and the Bairnsdale Stock Agents Association (BSAA) thank all vendors, buyers and carriers for the cooperation during the coronavirus pandemic. The cooperation being shown by everyone in supporting measures put in place has enabled us to continue to hold sales and support the local farming community.


We would like to remind the community that social distancing measures are in place on sale days at the East Gippsland Livestock Exchange.


To ensure sales continue within social distancing guidelines, we request that only people attending sales are genuine buyers, agents, council staff, and carriers.


From Friday 15 May, our store sales will run as follows:

  • A pre-sale viewing will take place between 8.30 – 9.30 am. All prospective buyers are encouraged to attend to identify their activity in the sale and sign in at the site register.
  • When the viewing closes, everyone will leave the yards.
  • Before the sale, identified genuine buyers will be able to register and re-enter the yards to take part in the sale.
  • Once buyers have completed their engagement in the sale they need to leave the facility. This will help maintain social distancing requirements.

Carriers will not have access to the yards during the sale. Entry for carriers will be allowed before and after the sale.


Council and the BSAA also recommends visitors to the livestock exchange download the COVIDSafe app.



The East Gippsland Livestock Exchange is accredited with National Saleyard Quality Assurance Ltd (NSQA), and Meat and Livestock Australia.


Livestock care is a top priority and our management practices and facility design ensure a low-stress environment.


We provide focused bio-security practices to ensure all livestock entering the Livestock Exchange have their associated National Vendor Declarations (NVDs) and ear-tagged with the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS). 


The Livestock Exchange is located at 11 Saleyards Road (off Dalmahoy Street), Bairnsdale.
