The Cootamundra Saleyards will remain open as an essential service. Following discussions with Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council staff and Associated Agents, the next Cootamundra Sheep Sale Sheep scheduled for Wednesday 1 April 2020 commencing 8.30am will take place as planned.
With the evolving COVID-19 threat Council and Agents request, if possible, vendors not attend the sale. Agents, buyers, transport drivers and Council staff in attendance will be required to adhere to Good Hygiene practices and Social Distancing principles. The canteen will not be operating.
Stock agent Andrew Adams from Delta Ag said “In these uncertain times we have to expect to make some sacrifices, it is great that Council is doing all it can to keep the sale yards operating.”
CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister said the operation of the sale yards is essential.
“Council, in conjunction with local Agents, is dedicated to ensuring the Cootamundra Saleyards continues operation and I ask Saleyard users to assist us in ensuring this remains possible,”
Cr McAlister said.
