Australia: Visiting Wagga Wagga Saleyard

The saleyard offers approximately 27000 sheep and lambs for sale. Many sheep in many pens are unable to move, and some sheep are pinned under other animals. We identify approximately 6 sheep who are unable to bear weight on a leg in the sale pens. All are destroyed. In the cattle area many pens are a mud-bog. The cattle were sold earlier in the week and have been moved although there is a pen of cows and a pen of 6 or so buffalo which is unusual to see. We will record the events in our report.
