The opening of the Bourke small livestock abattoir will be a game changer for the goat industry and for Bourke. The project site is being prepared for major infrastructure being constructed in Australia and overseas.

Construction of the region-changing $60m Bourke small livestock abattoir is underway with earthworks and the laying of concrete slabs confirming the developers are moving to a possible early 2018 start date.
