Farm near CBH Mt Madden bin
In an area popular with croppers and livestock producers, this landholding sits on three adjoining titles near the Mt Madden CBH bin.
The farm has a total area of 4002ha, of which 3449ha are arable, and frontage to Stennerts Lake-Norseman and Baanga Hill roads.
The current operation is dedicated to sheep, with about 5000 ewes plus lambs and a further 1200 dry sheep present. No crop was sown for this season.
Fenced into 12 paddocks, which range in size from 100ha to 400ha, the farm is serviced by 15 dams of varying capacity and the recorded annual rainfall for the district is 315-335mm. Mallee soil types comprise mainly loams over gravel and clays.
Improvements on lot 2711 include a three-bedroom transportable residence in average condition, a four-stand shearing and general purpose shed and timber sheep yards with 1500-head capacity.
Lot 2710 has a small super or grain storage shed.
“There has been strong inquiry for land in the district in the past five to 10 years and with livestock prices presently at strong levels and cropping still a growth area, this aggregation would be worth an inspection,” said agent Frank Miles.
