A project in the making since 2008, the South Eastern Livestock Exchange (SELX) is Australia’s newest livestock selling centre. SELX is located at the intersection of seven highways and arterial roads, just off the Hume Highway in Yass NSW.
Construction of the $15 million, 16 hectare world-class, regional livestock selling centre took 313 days. With a roof spanning 5 rugby fields and 86km of steel railing constructing 524 selling pens, the facility has the capacity to sell 3,800 cattle and 30,000 sheep on any given sale day.
Extensive research into the design and functionality of the sale yards has achieved a world-class facility focused on animal safety and wellbeing, environmental sustainability and workplace health and safety.
12 “Foundation Agents” have signed up to sell through the complex: AgStock, Butt Livestock & Property, Delta Agribusiness, Duncombe & Co Livestock, Elders, Gerrard & Partners, Holman Tolmie, Jim Hindmarsh & Co, Landmark, MD & JJ Anderson, Michael Hall Livestock & Property and Ray White Livestock.
Staff at SELX
Rod Bourlet – Sale Yard Manager
Born and bred in the Yass district, Rod grew up in Binalong on a mixed farming family property. Rod completed his studies at Yass High School before commencing his career as a stock and station agent with Pitt Son & Bender. From there Rod became a cattle buyer for PD Mulligan’s before a natural progression into the feedlot industry with ICM, Cargill and Tey’s at Jindalee. With Rod now operating a world-class sale yards facility, you could say that agriculture runs through Rod’s veins.
Away from work Rod is a passionate, and very successful, horseman. Rod breeds and trains Australian Stock horses, and when he finds time, competes in camp drafting, team penning or showing.
