OWNER Pat Weir is of­fer­ing the property Done­gal, lo­cated in the high-per­form­ing Hor­rane district on the Cen­tral Downs, for auc­tion.

Pat said he had fond mem­o­ries of Done­gal, which had been in the fam­ily since 1946, but he was look­ing to con­cen­trate on other in­ter­ests.

Of­fer­ing about 404 hectares of cul­ti­va­tion, with min­i­mum till on two-me­tre cen­tres, the to­tal property is about 517ha on two free­hold ti­tles, 8km south-east of Ce­cil Plains.

The coun­try is al­lu­vial self-mulching black soil box coun­try, of which about 142ha is fer­tilised in prepa­ra­tion for win­ter crop/sum­mer crop with the bal­ance of 263ha stand­ing bar­ley stub­ble.

Wa­ter is sup­plied by a stock and do­mes­tic bore, equipped with elec­tric sub­mersible pump.

There are two 19,000L poly wa­ter tanks and poly pipe­line to graz­ing coun­try. Sur­vey plans have been drawn up for a 447-me­gal­itre wa­ter stor­age and a 42ML sump.

Done­gal’s graz­ing coun­try is boundary-fenced with four barb, of­fer­ing one in­ter­nal pad­dock and a set of tim­ber cat­tle yards.

A mod­ern four-bed­room, two-bath­room, eight-year-old Hardiplank home is on the property. It has pol­ished floors, air-con­di­tion­ing, a car­port, and two-car lock-up garage. Wa­ter is sup­plied by three 19,000L rain­wa­ter tanks. There is a sec­ond four-bed­room home, plus ma­chin­ery and hay sheds, work­shop and si­los.

The property goes to auc­tion on May 8 at BMO, Dray­ton St, Dalby, at 5.30pm.
