Livestock Lending Bred Better

About us

Producers need flexible livestock finance solutions and a financier who understands the industry. Many progressive producers find it difficult to obtain the funding required to run their operation at full capacity, which means opportunities to grow may be left unmet or unrealised. We exist to fill that gap.

Legacy Livestock provides more considered livestock finance and lending products designed to help progressive operators enjoy greater profit, control, and growth – all while protecting and building your cash flow.
We have regional managers who know the industry and how to structure funding to work for you.
