Qual­ity river­side pas­ture

Central and North Rural Weekly - - PROPERTY -

LAND­MARK Har­courts Ta­room will sell the 1429.35ha prop­erty “Loch Craig” un­der in­struc­tions of es­tate ex­ecu­tors of the late Phyl­lis Whyte at Ta­room Bowls Club on Thurs­day, Au­gust 2.

The prop­erty has just re­ceived 45mm of rain. It presents de-stocked with a full body of feed and im­me­di­ate ac­cess for 600 dry cat­tle to the suc­cess­ful pur­chaser from auc­tion day.

Al­though now de-stocked, it has been very lightly stocked for the pre­ced­ing part of 2018 and heav­ily grassed with buf­fel and na­tive grasses.

“Loch Craig” is lo­cated 10km north of Ta­room, off the Le­ich­hardt High­way via Bax­ters Lane.

The prop­erty is tick-free and a cer­ti­fied PMAV is locked in.

The prop­erty is top-qual­ity graz­ing land of gen­tly un­du­lat­ing briga­low, bot­tle­tree, be­lah and soft­wood scrub fall­ing to fer­tile Daw­son River flats, with a small area of red loams with scat­tered box, iron­bark, and eu­ca­lypts.

The prop­erty features large frontages to both the Daw­son River and Palm Tree Creek, with wa­ter pumped from per­ma­nent Daw­son River wa­ter­holes to two tur­keys’ nests and two x 5000g poly tanks retic­u­lated to troughs, plus six dams and an equipped spring.

One hun­dred and 65 acres of prime Daw­son River flats have been farmed and fal­lowed, with fur­ther ar­eas of cul­ti­va­tions re­turned to grass.

Struc­tural im­prove­ments in­clude a three-bed­room tim­ber home­stead with cot­tage and a four-bay steel-frame shed.

There is a set of wooden stock yards par­tially ren­o­vated with steel, load­ing race, calf cra­dle and draft­ing pound.

The prop­erty is fenced into 14 main pad­docks and hold­ing pad­docks, with a mix of split and steel posts on three and four barbs in stock-proof or­der.

Some new fenc­ing has been com­pleted in 2018, with

laneways, steel end assem­blies, four barbs on

steel and split posts. Sell­ing agent Darryl Lang­ton said the prop­erty was well lo­cated in a great area and had fur­ther de­vel­op­ment po­ten­tial.

“If you are look­ing to pur­chase top-qual­ity Ta­room graz­ing coun­try with a big body of feed able to be stocked im­me­di­ately af­ter auc­tion, I would urge you to in­spect ‘Loch Craig’,” he said.
