The Scenic Rim Shire Council has proposed to discontinue the pig and calf sales at the current historic location. The pig and calf sale yards represents the historical development of Beaudesert’s cattle industry and has acted as a centre for the country community to meet.

The pig and calf sale yards create a commercial and social meeting place unique to an Australian country town. There is significant commercial benefit to the community to support the farmers and their families attending the sales in the same way as the farmers support the Beaudesert community. The ‘country market’ should continue to be held in the centre of town as this is the interface between town and country.

The historic tradition of ‘coming to town’ from the farm creates a hub for tourists wanting to experience our country life. It can also provide a centre for other tourist operators providing a country experience for tourists in the Scenic Rim.
