Market dates and order of draw:

 

***SUMMER SALE START TIMES ENDED***

Bendigo Livestock Exchange has reverted to the standard starting time, with sales to begin from 9.30am from Monday, 4th April. Following a successful trial and many users welcoming the early sale time during the summer period, it is being proposed that the summer sale timetable will return again for the entire Daylight Savings Time period (approx. start of October till end of March each year) on-going.

All users are encouraged to contact the Livestock Exchange to provide feedback.

**HOWARD STREET BRIDGE WORKS**

From April 11th, City of Greater Bendigo will be undertaking works to the Howard Street bridge over the Bendigo Creek. BLE is aware that this is a key access road for transporting stock and is wishing to advise Producers and Transporters of planned interruptions to this road. It is suggested to use alternate route during this period via Holdsworth Road, Prouses Road and Averys Road to avoid works. It is expected these works will be completed by end of July 2022.

*CATTLE SALE CLOSURE*

The Bendigo Agents Association have cancelled the fortnightly (previously weekly) Prime Cattle Sale. This decision was not made lightly and was in response to a complete loss of Processor Buyers willing to attend following multiple sales with very low numbers of Cattle suitable for processing. 

Bendigo Livestock Exchange will continue to work with the Bendigo Agents Association and other stakeholders to find uses for the Cattle facility, to the benefit of the community. Whilst this brings to an end an over 150 year old operation (at least for now), we look forward to focusing on opportunities to increase the utilisation of the facility in future, in whatever format that looks like. Bendigo Livestock Exchange wish to thank everyone involved in the sale.
