3,428 acres of Eastern Fall cattle country in rainy (1100mm) northern NSW carrying breeder and follower equivalent of 250 head. (Management keeps young fattening cattle to 24 months rather than selling followers). Spring fed creek and eight dams, gravity fed troughs. State of the art yards, shedding, laneway system, two houses. Rotationally grazed cattle trained to voice command. 24km from Casino, NSW.
Selling beef direct insulates income against fluctuating cattle prices. Offering 100% grass fed beef maintains a premium, selling nose to tail ensures minimal wastage. About 120 x 400kg bullocks and females can be turned off Spring Valley every year, after female replacements and birth rates are accounted for. Local Land Services have approved a further 350 acres of clearing to pasture which should increase carrying capacity by 70%, to turn off 200 x 400kg beasts per year. Further grazing can be developed in the valleys beyond the main valley ridges to further increase carrying capacity.
About 2,500 acres of Spring Valley is available for selective, sustainable logging as per the Local Land Services registered PNF plan.
The fully furnished second house near the main house on Spring Valley has been used for visitor accommodation and can be converted into a farmstay operation for extra revenue.
