LAWD is pleased to present for sale Warrakimbo, which offers true diversity in production and income streams from, dryland farming, grazing, and Biodiversity Stewardships.
Dryland farming operations of 2,400* hectares have produced, Wheat, Canola, Barley, Oats and Lupins. In 2020 Canola and Wheat have been sown. Good sub-soil moisture and recent Urea applications auger well for a strong financial return.
Grazing practices have oscillated between prime lamb production, beef cattle production and trade cattle enterprises. Currently, there is no livestock on Warrakimbo.
The scale of Warrakimbo allows the new owner to realise full efficiencies in individual production systems or to vary the mix of enterprises and maintain financial and operational balance.
The two distinct areas of timber on Warrakimbo have been identified as containing the following plant communities:
• Belah woodland on alluvial plains and low rises in the central NSW wheatbelt to Pilliga and Liverpool Plains regions.
• Western Grey Box tall grassy woodland on alluvial loam and clay soils in the NSW South Western Slopes and Riverina Bioregions
• Western Grey Box - White Cypress Pine, tall woodland on loam soil on alluvial plains of NSW South Western Slopes Bioregion and Riverina Bioregion
This would create confidence for a potential buyer to establish a Biodiversity Stewardship Scheme.
