The WA Government is calling for Expressions of Interest to meet the livestock marketing needs of South-West producers, ahead of the expected closure of the Boyanup saleyard in 2022.
The Western Australian Meat Industry Authority (WAMIA) has released an EOI to gain preliminary information on potential solutions for a replacement facility.
The EOI will also determine any assistance interested parties would be seeking from the State Government.
Solutions that both include and exclude a lease of the Muchea Livestock Centre will be considered, as some parties have indicated operating both facilities could create efficiencies.
Responses to the EOI will be evaluated, and shortlisted respondents invited to a second and final Request for Detailed Proposal phase.
