As a spin-off of record wool and high sheep prices, Joe and Carol Forrest, who own and operate Midland Stockyards have never been so busy. Former farmers themselves, they know sheep producers need successive seasons of good prices before they can justify upgrading infrastructure and that is happening now.
“We’ve been doing sheep yards for four years, sales were good to start with but they have just been going up and up by a big percentage each year,” Joe said.
“We sell more sheep yards than our competitors do and that’s purely because of our background and the quality of our yards. We know we have the best-built yards in Western Australia at the moment, we also keep up ideas and innovations and we listen to farmers. We chose a manufacturer in China that we trust and we hammer quality all the time. We haven’t got a huge range but we’ve got what farmers want.”
Midland Stockyards sells portable, relocatable (their biggest seller) and permanent yards, plus they can custom design to suit a specific location.
The yards are modular so farmers can buy extra panels to extend at any time.
