WAMIA in saleyard shift


Animal handling and sale administration services at the Muchea Livestock Centre and sale administration services for South West saleyards will be provided by the WA Meat Industry Authority from July 1.

These services are currently provided by Livestock Logistics Western Australia, a joint venture between Elders, Landmark and WAMIA.

LLWA has been in operation since 1999, providing services at MLC and its predecessor, the Midland Saleyards, as well as a number of South West saleyards.

The change is designed to streamline operations at Muchea and improve confidence in the operation of the centre.

Agriculture Minister Dean Nalder said operational and financial performance at the MLC had improved significantly because of key staff changes and improved governance by WAMIA.

This change was made after extensive consultations with key stakeholders, particularly the partners in LLWA.

The fees charged for services will remained unchanged.

There will be no job losses, with WAMIA taking responsibility for all existing LLWA staff.
