About Us

Coalgate Saleyards is situated only 15 mins from Darfield on the Main Highway 72. 

Customer access to the yards is off Queen Street and transporter access available from Station Street.

Coalgate has a very long history of being a saleyards township with the original Coalgate Saleyards being formally opened in 1898 by Sir John Hall. Over 110 years later in 2009 CCSL purchased the yards and have since then made significant upgrades including an impressive cattle weigh and NAIT reading system, larger cattle and sheep yards, on site offices and functional loading bays for transporters.

CCSL also provides excellent penning and drafting facilities, which not only allows perspective purchasers adequate time to do their buying selection, but also significantly speeds up the actual process during the sales. The yards are also NAIT accredited and will provide NAIT scanning for all cattle.


Auctions are held every Thursday with the following timetable:

Prime Sheep - 9.00am

Store Sheep - 11.00am

Prime & Store Cattle - 11.30am


 Coalgate Saleyards are proud of the helpful and efficient service we offer and are very grateful for the tremendous support we receive from both vendors and buyers. Coalgate Saleyards are striving towards being Canterbury’s leading selling centre and will continually search for innovative ways to further develop and improve the service for all of our clients.
