CVLX | Central Victoria Livestock Exchange
CVLX is a project to develop a modern, efficient livestock marketing centre North West of Ballarat, in Victoria. When built, the new facility will host weekly cattle and sheep sales, and monthly store cattle sales for livestock selling agents and their clients to market cattle and sheep in a safe, animal friendly, efficient and modern regional marketplace.
CVLX will be designed, built and operated with safety, animal welfare, operational efficiency, and environmental sustainability in mind.
At present, livestock sales for the Central Victorian region of Victoria are conducted at the Ballarat saleyards in Latrobe Street, Ballarat. These saleyards have been operating since the 1860’s. Facilities are aging and conditions no longer meet modern safety, animal welfare and environmental standards required in today’s industry.
The CVLX project will provide a new, modern facility to replace the Ballarat saleyards. It will accommodate annual throughput of 70,000 cattle and 1.6 million sheep and will improve the safe movement and handling of livestock on sale days.
