On Friday the NTBIC met with Central AgriGroup’s Plant Manager and Group Compliance Manager, responsible for finalising all of the arrangements to open the Batchelor Abattoir for processing of buffalo, cattle and donkeys from 01 July 2019. The abattoir is expecting to recruit a workforce of 60 skilled processors and will be initially seeking Tier 2 accreditation to give it greater market access. Shade and water sprinkler facilities are currently being erected at the holding yards. The Plant Manager has confirmed that once processing gets underway the abattoir will receive buffalo throughout the month. A reminder to producers that buffalo must be tipped and tagged on delivery.
