DROUGHT PROOF GRAZING OPPORTUNITY

Opportunity

The opportunity to purchase quality Macquarie Marshes grazing land with dual flood out potential from both the Macquarie River and from the double creek frontage to the Bulgeraga Creek. 

 

Extensive works have been done to maximise the spread and retention of water giving longer growth periods, especially when the large lagoon fills in the centre of the property. Additional environmental flows can separate this property from the others in the district. A large portion of the property is open and arable and it lends itself to opportunity cropping. 

 

With deep alluvial river soils, the property produces an abundance of feed. The Property is highly productive with phenomenal fattening ability on natural grasses, medics, herbages or crops. Sub-divided into 4 main paddocks plus a holding paddock and includes steel cattle yards with crush and calf cradle. Water is supplied by the double frontage to the permanent Bulgeraga Creek and a solar pump that is connected to poly line feeding back to tanks and troughs. Power is on site. 

 

The Property has always been conservatively stocked to maintain good ground cover to enable abundant regeneration of pastures.

 

The property has a substantial ecological significance and has been managed to facilitate the maintenance of this bio-diversity.

 

This is a significant opportunity to purchase a well-recognised parcel in a very tightly held area.
