ALMA is the peak body for the saleyard and lairage industry, representing and promoting the interests of saleyard and lairage owners and operators... in short industry's voice at all levels of government and stakeholder engagement.
ALMA is the only true national entity working on behalf of this industry and currently represents the majority of the industry players from NSW, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
Our members provide livestock exchanges to around 1,200 stock and station agents and tens of thousands of livestock producers. Many of our members are local government entities but ALMA also represent private operators both large and small. Total transactions through our members' facilities is in excess of $5 billion annually.
Created in 2010, ALMA grew out of the amalgamation of the NSW, QLD and SA Saleyard Operators Associations..... bringing together the industry for the first time.
ALMA addresses key issues that have the potential to impact on the viability of the saleyard and lairage industry. It does this with the support of the industry and is recognised by government and industry as the united single national voice that speaks for and on behalf of the industry.
