FENCING: Laneway from steel cattle yards with crush and drafting pound, located in centre of property and sheep yards to wooden yards at house with cattle loading race. Boundary mainly renewed in last ten years, netting with wood and steel posts, internal fences of ringlock and or plain wires, mainly all stock proof. Some cultivation and laneway fences are powered.
CARRYING CAPACITY: Present owners estimate in normal type seasons that this property would carry approx 300 Breeding cows comfortably ( with potential to carry progeny further with winter and pasture crops ) in the past approx 3500 Merino wethers were carried on this property successfully for many years.
COMMENTS: The only reason this property is for private sale is that owners have relocated to another family property where they operate Wagyu and ET cattle breeding service operation. There approx 350-400 young agistment cattle on this property at present, after recent storms, all dams are in good condition, the Oakey creek has run and pastures are starting to respond, hopefully more rain soon.
Although this property is located in a Trap rock country area, it is a lot softer type than most in this area, it is well watered, has mainly stock proof fences and ready for pasture improvement plan which will enable the new owners to either finish young stock or to carry a breeding herd or sheep equivalents
Vendors offering short contract option and access to grazing rights on signing of contract.
