Developed Dairy Support/Beef Unit

Surplus to our vendors requirements is this well-developed pastoral farm located in Dunrobin. This property itself has an excellent appeal to it with the mature plantings, trees, ponds, healthy pasture and well balanced contour.

The vendor utilises this reliable property to graze all dairy livestock from their large scale dairy unit nearby, and also harvests all grass supplements required as well.

Infrastructure consists of a comfortable, large character homestead that is well positioned, and the farm is supported by a very good central lane system, cattle yards, large covered calf shed (which was converted form the old woolshed), full reticulated water scheme and multiple other sheds.

This property is to be sold, with possession date being negotiable for the new purchaser.
