MAJORS CREEK SOLD
The greatest detriment to the viability of any agri-business is drought. Drought is a constant in our minds. When will it start, when will it end? Like death and taxes, it's going to happen. Unless you live at Wongabel.
This outstanding property of 1317 acres ticks all the investment boxes. Versatility, water security, excellent location, income generating. Developers take note: huge potential for growth in productivity and capital.
Wongabel has run approximately 6000 DSE over the last 15 years. Being only 50km's from the coast as the crow flies, the predominant weather is easterly and the long term average is 740 mm or 30 inches. Afternoon mists often blow in from the coast during summer, hydrating the pasture and sustaining plant growth.
As well, there are approximately 40 spring fed dams! And countless springs soaking the soil surface across the property. Water, water, water. With dams that never dry up and pastures that grow for most of the year, every year, some people might call this property drought proof. It is certainly low risk farming.
There is also room for pasture development by applying lime and super phosphate. The pastures, which are basically weed free, are 40% improved species including phalaris, cocksfoot, fescue, ryes and clovers, and 60% native grasses. Further development would increase carrying capacity substantially.
A reticulated water system is used to distribute water throughout the property.
