Wa­ter se­cu­rity a fea­ture for Brae­more

South Burnett Times - - RURAL WEEKLY -

BRAE­MORE Farm is a 279.5hectare (690.64 acres) prop­erty po­si­tioned five min­utes to Karara, 30 min­utes to War­wick and 50 min­utes to Toowoomba.

The prop­erty runs from pro­duc­tive ex lucerne ap­ple tree flats (about 220 acres), gently ris­ing to pre­dom­i­nately cleared open iron­bark traprock coun­try with no cul­ti­va­tion at present.

But about 200 acres or more could be farmed if re­quired.

The prop­erty en­joys three qual­ity wa­ter sources.

Back Creek runs through the prop­erty, which has nu­mer­ous re­li­able waterholes.

Wa­ter is pumped via an elec­tric pres­sure pump, which de­liv­ers wa­ter to the gar­den and yards, about 18,000 gal­lons of rain­wa­ter stor­age and eight stock dams.

There is a li­censed 25ML ir­ri­ga­tion dam. Wa­ter is grav­ity-fed to a stor­age dam.

Po­si­tioned ad­ja­cent is a diesel air-cooled en­gine and pump, de­liv­er­ing wa­ter to hy­drants via four and three-inch un­der­ground mains. A soft hose trav­el­ling ir­ri­ga­tor is used to wa­ter about 25 acres.

The prop­erty is di­vided into seven graz­ing pad­docks. A large laneway makes stock move­ment user friendly on both han­dler and an­i­mal.

There is a qual­ity set of tim­ber yards, which has nu­mer­ous hold­ing pens, ex­cel­lent draft­ing gate, un­der­cover crush and tim­ber ramp and is user friendly.

Sheep yards are fit­ted with sheep pens, race and work­ing area, po­si­tioned ad­ja­cent to the clas­sic two-stand shear­ing shed, which is full of his­tory.

The true fam­ily home con­sists of three bed­rooms, one bath­room, ren­o­vated kitchen ad­ja­cent to the fam­ily eat­ing area and spa­cious fam­ily lounge TV area.
