‘Croydon Park’ offers growth potential, proximity to feedlots

Prime beef breeding and backgrounding property ‘Croydon Park’ near Meandarra has the proximity to feedlots, guaranteed water supply and established forage cropping to offer exceptional opportunities for further expansion.

Situated in the heart of Queensland’s highly regarded Western Downs, the 2,498-hectare property, comprising three freehold titles, is capable of carrying 1,000 Adult Equivalents. Currently, 350ha are under forage crops, however there is scope to expand this area to 1,200ha.

While ‘Croydon Park’ features access to a permanently flowing artesian bore and reliable annual rainfall of 572mm, LAWD Director, Simon Cudmore, said it’s the property’s proximity to industry-leading feedlots that make it an exceptional proposition.

“’Croydon Park’ has 10 of the top 25 Australian feedlots within a radius of 150km, so there’s no shortage of marketing options to make this a great beef backgrounding operation,” Mr Cudmore said.

“The property features fertile Brigalow-Belah soils, productive improved pastures and excellent water security, all of which can support future growth.”

‘Croydon Park’ owners are registered licensees of a sub-artesian share bore, with water distributed over the property via several kilometres pipe, while tanks, troughs and 10 stock dams are strategically sited to provide maximum grazing radius. A productive mix of pastures includes Buffel grass, Rhodes, Purple Pigeon, Bambatsi and Bluegrass as well as native legumes complement dryland cropping on the mostly grey, self-mulching, cracking clay soils.

At 12km long and 2km wide, LAWD Director, Grant Veivers, said the property consisted of 14 main paddocks, and a laneway system connecting the centrally located cattle yards to support efficient movement of livestock.

“The current owners have also invested in extensive capital expenditure on pasture improvement and fencing, including 9.5km of exclusion fencing that forms part of the property boundary,” Mr Veivers said.

“Quality infrastructure includes an airstrip, cattle yards, three silos, and a machinery shed with a three-stand shearing shed at one end, with water and power connected.”

The four-bedroom timber homestead with a double carport includes satellite and wireless internet and the property benefits from all-weather access via the Leichhardt Highway to the nearby township of Meandarra.

‘Croydon Park’ is 84km from Miles, 141km from St George and 175km from Dalby, a key business centre offering retail, financial, medical and agricultural services as well as education.

‘Croydon Park’ is for sale by Expression of Interest closing 12pm Friday 3 May 2024.
