LAWD is pleased to present for sale, Gilgai Farms (the Property). A high-quality benchmarked grazing enterprise on Dubbo’s doorstep. Under current management the property is operated for breeding and fattening of both sheep and cattle. The Property does have a true mixed farm ability with cropping having been undertaken in the past.
Gilgai Farms spans an area of 2,183 hectares, with the majority sown down to perennial pastures, and a non-seasonal average rainfall of 615* millimetres that underpin a carrying capacity of 13,500 DSE.
Pastures comprise a mixture of native and improved perennial and annual grasses combined with sub-clover, clovers, trefoil and lucerne. The non-seasonal rainfall allows pastures to contain sub-tropical species, bambatsi, purple Pidgeon grass, premier digit grass, warrego summer grass and box grass. Clovers also include arrow-leaf and Haifa white. The outcome is that in a normal season a balanced sward suitable for sheep and cattle can be achieved almost all year round.
Stock-water is a feature of the Property, with a combination of 77* dams, a reticulated water system supplied from a bore yielding 3,150*litres per hour, and pumping stations on five large dams that total 90 megalitres of storage. Buffer security for the system is supported by nine 22,500 litre poly tanks. All paddocks have a stock water source.
An extensive laneway system and quality internal fencing assists in management of stock for a low-stress grazing enterprise.
Excellent livestock handling facilities are located at the centre of the property with satellite facilities reducing the need for stock travel. Facilities include, a four-stand shearing shed complete with lunchroom, shower, and toilet, 800 adult sheep held undercover, adjoining steel sheep yards, 2,500 head working capacity.
