Prime pas­tures near south coast

Countryman - - PROPERTY -

This is one of the most pro­duc­tive prop­er­ties in Red­mond West.

This ex­cel­lent prop­erty is lo­cated on Hunwick and Redhen roads with ac­cess from Hunwick Road into the sheds and yards. It is 34km west of Al­bany city and 31km from Den­mark.

Com­pris­ing of 132ha, this prop­erty has an es­ti­mated 115ha-plus of prime pas­tures with ex­cel­lent sub clovers, kikuyu grass, mixed rye grasses and some peren­nial clovers.

Most of the prop­erty is able to be grazed, with the bal­ance of a creek­line and shel­ter.

Orig­i­nally tim­bered with a mix of jar­rah, redgum, black­butt, paper­bark and tea tree, this prop­erty boasts good soil types of sands over iron­stone over clays, with ar­eas of peat.

The prop­erty is well

wa­tered with seven main dams plus four soaks and one per­ma­nent creek­line that runs all year round.

Si­t­u­ated in the 800mm-plus rain­fall re­gion, this home is 20km as the crow flies from the south coast.

Dur­ing the past few years, the own­ers have en­larged and placed new dams and soaks on the prop­erty.

Fenc­ing over­all is of a good stan­dard, with a mix of new and older fenc­ing that com­prises of ringlock, barb wire and plain wire elec­tric on pine and jar­rah posts.

This prop­erty is fenced into four con­ve­nient pad­docks with one smaller hold­ing pad­dock for easy stock move­ment and op­er­a­tional man­age­ment.

Prop­erty im­prove­ments in­clude a large fully en­closed ma­chin­ery work­shop shed with con­crete floor and power with a lean-to at­tached.

There is also a near-new 216sqm three-sided hay shed con­structed with steel and iron and good cat­tle yards made of steel and wood.

There is also a good crush, all well lo­cated for stock move­ment.

There is also a num­ber of homestead sites on the prop­erty.

This qual­ity prop­erty has been un­der as­tute man­age­ment dur­ing the past four to five years and is run­ning 132 steers with an es­ti­mated ca­pac­ity to run 100-plus breed­ers and calves.

The owner is run­ning steers to ease the work­load.

Pas­ture hay has been cut on most pad­docks in the last few years with ex­cel­lent ton­nages achieved due to the ap­pli­ca­tion of more than 900 tonnes of lime on the prop­erty from 2014.
