Cattle Sales


Burnett Livestock & Realty’s primary selling centre is situated in Biggenden in the North Burnett. The Burnett Livestock Exchange is known for its commitment to safety, quality and animal welfare. Liveweight combined fat and store cattle sales are conducted on a fortnightly basis. We also offer special and show cattle sales throughout the year. View our cattle sale calendar for up coming sales.

Our Commitment To Welfare

At Burnett Livestock and Realty we have a complete and total commitment to welfare at our cattle sales.  We consider the welfare of all animals and people at our Burnett Livestock Exchange.  We have a written policy to minimise accidents for our employees that includes induction and on-going training and safety briefings before each sale if issues arise.  We currently exceed the ALPA guidelines for the operation of Saleyards.

We also have a written policy for the continuance of best practice standards in relation to cattle welfare.  We know that calm, well maintained cattle achieve the best prices as they produce the best beef; but more than that we employ people that have a genuine passion for working in the cattle industry and we share that passion with our employees.  Beef cattle are our business and we always ensure the welfare of the cattle at the Biggenden Cattle Sales.

If you have any concerns about welfare at the Burnett Livestock Exchange please contact Burnett Livestock & Realty. Download a copy of our Cattle & Human Welfare Plan or the MLA’s ‘Is the animal fit to load?‘ guide
