More Info →Saleyards at Pohangina

These saleyards are believed to have been situated at Pohangina Township on William Homes' farm. The historian of Manawatu saleyards Mr John McCaw gives the following history of the yards “A few years later (1895) Abraham and Williams advertised that they were operating 10 saleyards, including one at Pohangina where periodical sales were held. The yards were opened on January 11, 1895, and the capacity of the yard is quoted as 2000 sheep and 100 cattle. It was situated about 10 chains south of the township and many settlers can remember the posts and strainers still standing there until about 20 years ago”.
