The upgrade at the Singleton Regional Livestock Markets (SRLM) will increase future certainty and enhanced economic viability of the facility for current and future needs of the wider community. It will enable the SRLM to enhance its role as a regional facility and ensure there is infrastructure capable of meeting demand from the agricultural industry for now and into the future.
