Saleyards are an important avenue for revenue within our regional communities. But what many forget is that it is also typically an important social hub for many isolated farmers.

We’ve made it clear that The Nationals and regional NSW won’t be taken for granted.
Not now, not ever.
You might have seen that our leader, John Barilaro, described the Coalition Agreement between the NSW Nationals and Liberals as a blank sheet of paper.
In doing so he said: “Everything is on the table…. I made no deals when taking over as Leader of the NSW Nationals and I won’t start now”.
He said that while he was looking forward to working with a new Premier it was time to draw a line in the sand over how regional New South Wales was treated by the Government. The first item of business was pending council amalgamations.
Today, he committed to end any pending local government mergers in the bush.
The Nationals are the only party representing regional NSW that are actually sitting at the decision-making table with the power to do something about it. And, we’re the only grassroots party with true democracy – where everyone gets a say.
Everyone else is just pretending.
