TAS Country : March 15th 2012
Friday, March 16, 2012 Tasmanian Country 25 Rural property Pastrol holding set for development THIS extensive pastoral holding of about 222.5ha has huge potential for fur- ther development. The property has been renovated to rye and clo- ver species. A new seven- span centre point pivot covering 60ha has been installed for premium and prolonged fodder or crop- ping potential. The farm has two dams totalling 160Ml under water licence. The main dam has a capacity of 120Ml although it has been surveyed and had approval for expan- sion. That approval has expired, but the survey documents are still appli- cable and provide for an increase to 440Ml. The property has been used predominantly for the rearing of dairy followers, and production of fodder. It would be ideally suited for a beef breeding prop- erty, mixed farming with crops under the pivot, or a medium-sized dairy con- version. About two thirds of the property has had pasture renovation in the past two to three seasons. There is an agreement in place for the acreage under pivot to be leased for the production of potatoes for the forthcoming season. This property has been in fallow from cropping for many years, making it highly suitable for all crop- ping rotations, particularly given the friable soil nature and ease of culti- vation and lack of stone. The house is a two- bedroom weatherboard constructed home, and is ideal for renovation and expansion. The property has good shed capacity, with a new 24mx12mx5.5m four-bay barn/machinery shed in addition to a twin bay machinery shed, disused walk through dairy, and a number of utility sheds, cattle yards, crush and NLIS scanner. The pastures are cur- rently divided into about 43 permanent paddocks. The full potential of this property is yet to be re- alised, whether as a graz- ing and agistment prop- erty, cropping, mixed farming or dairy conver- sion and has the capacity to dramatically increase water holding capacity and income potential. This represents a sound investment for the future for an astute farmer. PARKHAM Bradys Plains Rd Extensive pastoral holding with immense potential Land: 222.5ha House: Two bedrooms, numerous outbuildings $3,400,000 Sushames Neil Colbeck 0429 331 664 This quality dairy has investment potential MT HEATHORN is a great buying opportunity for perhaps a young farmer or an investor. It's a property that is in fantastic condition which shows the work and invest- ment that the current ow- ners have put in over the last 20 years. They milk 150 cows but have milked up to 170 as well as running 20 beef/ dairy cross. They have farmed in a conservative manner over the years with low sup- plementary feed rates and stocking rates as well carrying dry stock on the property. A higher input operator would no doubt agist their dry stock, increase sup- plementary feed rates as well increasing fertiliser rates, enabling the prop- erty to milk up to 200 cows. The soil type is mostly red krasnozems and is in excellent heart with first class pasture. The well designed, mod- ern 16 swing-over dairy, good lane ways, fencing and stock trough layout makes the day-to-day oper- ations easy to manage. The irrigation and se- cure water supply and li- cences, ensure Mt Heath- orn is a secure summer milking property along with Ringarooma's regular summer easterly rains. There are also numer- ous sheds and a three- to four-bedroom house in good condition with a beautiful cottage garden.
