Abattoir could trigger cattle boom
Written on the 26 February 2016
Yeeda Pastoral Company boss Jack Burton has predicted the size of the Kimberley cattle herd could increase 10-fold as he prepares to open a new abattoir between Broome and Derby.
Yeeda has appointed experienced meat industry figure Geoff Bevan as general manager and John McQuillan as plant manager after investing more than $25 million in the facility.
One of their first tasks will be to recruit staff in a boost for the region more than 20 years after the Broome abattoir closed.
