Howqua is fenced into 14 main pad­docks, with a mix of two-barb and four-plain fenc­ing, ringlock and hinge joint fenc­ing, and in­cludes a set of steel panel and mesh yards, with a five-way pound, cov­ered crush and steel load­ing ramp.

Im­prove­ments in­clude a four-bed­room, two-bath­room main house with a pool and ten­nis court, as well as two-bed­room guest ac­com­mo­da­tion, three sheds, and 10 si­los.

Howqua will be auc­tioned at 10.30am on Thurs­day, May 22, at the BMO Cen­tre, Dray­ton St, Dalby.
