RSPCA Australia is not calling for a ban on saleyards. Significant improvements to address animal welfare concerns at saleyards have been made in recent times and we will continue to work with saleyard operators to achieve further improvements across the wider industry. While RSPCA Australia strongly encourages the direct consignment of farm animals because of the inherent stress caused by multiple transport and handling, we recognise that for many producers saleyards will continue to be part of the supply chain.
