WVLX manager Tim Nowell said he felt the fees were very comparable to other yards in the region, considering all the benefits of the brand new, world-class selling centre.
“We’ve spent a lot of time working on the fees, finding that balance to make it affordable for all those that want to use this amazing facility, as well as ensuring the sustainability of WVLX into the future,” Mr Nowell said.
All cattle, excluding bulls 401kg and above will be charged at $15.95 per head (excluding gst), and all bulls over 401kg will be charged at $20.45 per head (excluding gst).
Mr Nowell said there has been a lot of interest in the saleyards.
“Our first sale will be a prime market, starting at 9am, and early indications from our foundation agents are that we’ll have big numbers,” Mr Nowell said.
