Southern Australian Livestock Pty Ltd was established in June 1984 and is one of the most successful and well connected stock agencies in South Australia. The SAL business is part of the extensive Ruralco network and has been an important part of that network servicing the clients of South East SA. In February 2018, SAL joined forces with Ruralco counterparts, Platinum Operations. The amalgamation of the two companies has made the operation one of the largest livestock agency businesses in South Australia. With 28 livestock representatives on the ground, SAL services more than 3,000 clients across the state.
The Platinum/SAL team, as well as joint venture partners EP Livestock, combined with the ownership and running of the CIAA network, ensures that all buying and selling options are covered – we can handle any livestock transaction through any form of sales process that is required along with handling any amount of livestock or at any price every day of the year.
SAL has livestock representation in Mount Gambier, Naracoorte, Kingston and Bordertown and links in strongly with the Platinum Livestock operatives based at Keith to cover the entire South East of South Australia and across the fringes of the Victorian border.
Due to our large client base and high volume of livestock transactions (both store and trade livestock) through saleyards at Mt Gambier, Naracoorte, Mount Compass, Dublin and Crystal Brook – our connection to all the leading processors, feedlotters, live export operators and industry based organisations is extremely strong. We have many clients/agents using the AuctionsPlus system and the majority of our agents buy and sell on farm from clients that are willing sellers to many of our clients that are willing buyers.
