Cattle Sale at Colac
 Colac Regional Saleyards
 Colac Saleyard Report: National Livestock Reporting Service
Colac Regional Saleyards - a market leader
* Sale days traditionally Thursdays.

* Store cattle sales are held regularly, including the famous two-day Birregurra Weaner Sale in January.

* In 2005, due to a lack of sheep and lamb numbers, a decision was made to virtually cease sheep and lamb sales.
* Four agents operate at the Centre,

The Colac Regional Saleyards has been operating for over 30 years and generates in excess of $4.7 million each year.

The Colac Otway Shire has committed to significant financial investment in the placement of a roof at the Centre and has continually moved to ensure the Centre is at its most competitive.


Rubber flooring in the pens means animal comfort is at an optimum, and the recent adoption of post-weigh sales mean that Colac saleyards are advancing with the times.

Post-sale weighing is considered to put less stress on cattle and provides higher yields, which lead to more consistent prices for producers.
