LAWD is pleased to present for sale Gayton (The Property). A renowned prime lucerne property, featuring the unique self-watering flats of the Belubula river, underpinned by 620* millimetres annual rainfall, 405* megalitres water entitlements and quality arable soils, located in the prized Canowindra region.

Spanning 115.21* hectares, the Property has a proven production history of prime lucerne production, dryland cropping, vegetables and prime lamb production.

Located in a renowned lucerne hay production district, 12* kilometres south-west of Canowindra, 36* kilometres north-west of Cowra, and 65* kilometres south-east of the major regional centre of Orange. Gayton is also strategically located to the capital cities of Sydney and Canberra, markets for horse owners and produce store clientele. Rivers Road Canowindra is one of the blue-ribbon address locations for specialist Agricultural production in NSW.

The unique nature of the self-watering flats of the Belubula river, consistently allows six* cuts of prime lucerne hay per season, without the intervention of irrigation. The Property has 31* hectares of self-watering flats. A further 24.5* hectares is irrigated by sub-surface drip tape (SSD). SSD is recognised for its water use efficiency and consistency in the quality of lucerne hay produced. Traditional spray-gun irrigation is carried out on 40* hectares. A design has been completed to convert some of this area to SSD.

Gayton is benefitted by the following water entitlements:
50* megalitres Belubula regulated river General Security licence
355* megalitres upper Lachlan alluvial groundwater, Zone 2

The main irrigation bore set at 76* metres depth, yields 31.5* litres/second from a 37* kilowatt submersible pump on a variable-speed drive. The second bore set at 18* metres depth, yields 16.4* litres/second.

Productivity levels are underpinned by reliable rainfall with the Bureau of Meteorology records at Cowra indicate a long-term average annual rainfall of 620* millimetres.
