Atlex Stockyards was established by Ian and Jeanette Crafter on their family property, "Miandetta", near Horsham, Victoria, in 1984. Even back then, Ian established a reputation for his customised sheepyard designs, after designing and manufacturing a set for his own sheep enterprise.


Ian Crafter

Managing Director/Principal Designer


Atlex Stockyards rapidly expanded with design consultancy, manufacturing and constructing of prefabricated steel sheepyards and cattleyards.

Emphasis has always been on the benefits of well designed, flexible yarding systems and solutions which minimise labour requirements and make stock work QUICKER, EASIER and SAFER for both the stock and the people involved.

In August 1994, Atlex Stockyards expanded to Dubbo, New South Wales, to allow for a more centralised design, service and distribution network. In August 1996, Atlex expanded to Belmont in Perth to better service the Western Australian region.
