Premium ‘Westmore’ offers year-round production in northwest Tasmania

Strategically located in one of Australia’s most productive cattle grazing and dairy production regions, the premium blue-ribbon ‘Westmore’ at Marrawah in northwest Tasmania has been listed for sale by the Greenham Group and is proudly presented to market by LAWD.

‘Westmore’ is believed to be one of the largest contiguous holdings of agricultural land in Tasmania and comprises 3,368ha optimised for beef or dairy production in the Circular Head region, approximately 35km from Smithton.

With an annual rainfall of 1,072mm, ‘Westmore’ currently finishes around 6,500 cattle each year, including a combination of F1 Wagyus, British Bred and Dairy Beef Cattle. In addition, the property runs a breeding herd of 250 self-replacing cows.

A key supplier to Cape Grim branded beef, ‘Westmore’ carries Greenham’s globally recognised accreditation for the grassfed standard NEVER EVER Beef, as well as the new Greenham Beef Sustainability Standard (GBSS), a voluntary on-farm program that outlines a practical set of key indicators and measures to enhance and showcase sustainable practices.

Greenham Group Managing Director, Peter Greenham, said the property offered an opportunity to secure a proven livestock production asset, with an option to purchase the current herd.

“New owners will step straight into our supply chain, including accreditation, while benefiting from high productivity and a significant natural capital asset base,” Mr Greenham said.

“Since purchasing the property we have invested heavily in the development of ‘Westmore’, including the application of compost, organic products such as lime sand and non-synthetic fertilisers, which have significantly boosted the carrying capacity of the property.

“We intend to reinvest the sale proceeds into our Smithton plant and downstream supply chain which will enable us to continue to improve and develop our world renowned Cape Grim program.”

‘Westmore’ features improved ryegrass and clover pastures, arable sandy peat and loam soils, and excellent stock water infrastructure, including four active groundwater bores reticulated to troughs, a large catchment dam, surface water dams and rainwater tanks.

A licensed gravel pit on the property is used to develop and maintain an extensive network of laneways throughout the property. Fencing and stock handling facilities have been well maintained and in are in optimal condition.

Other infrastructure on ‘Westmore’ includes an office, two machinery sheds, four hay sheds, a workshop, a cattle yard complex and a further three sets of cattle yards, while housing comprises a five-bedroom brick homestead, three cottages and workers’ accommodation.

LAWD Director, Danny Thomas, said ‘Westmore’ presented a significant opportunity to buy into a tightly held region where operations of this scale rarely come to market.

“This is one of Australia’s most productive cattle and dairying regions benefiting from highly reliable rainfall and an excellent mixture of land and soil types,” Mr Thomas said.

“We expect the property to attract significant interest from landholders or syndicates seeking expansion opportunities in either beef or dairy production, high net worth individuals or domestic and global investors.”

‘Westmore’, Marrawah is approximately 35km from Smithton, 105km from Burnie and 210km from Launceston.

The property is for sale by Expression of Interest, closing at 4.00pm Thursday 13 June 2024.
