Thank you for taking the time to read our Autumn Newsletter. Greetings to our new readers and a warm welcome back to our loyal readers. Thompson Longhorn has had a very exciting start to the year with multiple new major projects underway, along with current projects drawing to completion.
During the next few months we are also proud to be sponsoring multiple events including the Adina Polocrosse World Cup. The Polocrosse event will be held in Warwick from the 22nd - 28th of April 2019. Our Sales Team will be at our trade stall for the duration of the World Cup Polocrosse event and are eager to speak to you about why choosing Thompson Longhorn for your yard upgrade is the best decision. Ex demo equipment will also be on display available for purchase. During the event we will also be sponsoring the Thompson Longhorn Barastock Interstate Series Team Meet and Greet and attending the auction on Friday the 26th to auction cattle handling equipment.
Biggenden Saleyard is drawing to completion which has been one of our major projects over the last 12 months. Continue reading to see progress photos and interesting facts about the project.
Biggenden Livestock Exchange
By Cassandra Dale
Biggenden Livestock Exchange has been a massive project we undertook and estimated completion for the end of March. The construction of the saleyards includes demolition of the old yards, design of the new yards along with construction and installation. The construction was completed on schedule with no major issues. During the construction local businesses were utilised to ensure the timely completion of the project. Please see below a few facts about the saleyard rebuild along with multiple progress photos.
The saleyards have been an extensive project for Thompson Longhorn over the past 12 months. Rebuilding saleyards presents many challenges as the yards are normally still in operation and construction must allow for these sales to proceed with no interruption. The saleyard will be completed by the end of the month.

Here at Thompson Longhorn we pride ourselves on our ability to provide innovative design solutions for any customer in any situation to accommodate the best cattle movement efficiency possible.

Furthermore, design is fully effective whether you want 2 pens or 20
