144 Cridlands Road, ABBEYWOOD, QLD, 4613, 288 acres of the best quality grazing in the Sth Burnett!
If you're looking for a truly top quality softwood scrub fattening block, then look no further.
Situated 30 minutes from Murgon Saleyards and 45 minutes from Kingaroy, this block has some of the best developed pasture that I have ever seen.
The owner has been meticulous with weed control and has long established stands of Hatch & Bisset Blue Grass, Gatton Panic, Green Panic, Rhodes Grass and Siratro on a mixture of strong red and black soil types.
A feature is 10 acres of Hatch Blue Grass for hay production which has had 120 tonnes of pig manure recently dug in and averages 7 large round bales per acre.
Very well fenced, internally and externally, this property is divided into 9 paddocks with 4 dams and has the Proston Rural Water Supply from Boondooma Dam piped to troughs into all paddocks from 2 header tanks. There is also a small, centrally located, fenced compound for grain assist feeding.
Currently running 100, (yes 100), head of steers and heifers, (average weight approximately 350-360kg's). And they have feed up to their bellies!
The block is undulating on the southern side and flattens out on the northern half with most of this ex-cultivation and contour banked.
You'll note from the overhead photo that there is a small amount, (approx 10-15 acres), of remnant vegetation which is red, with the balance cleared and white on 'current' vegetation maps.
Sheds are more than adequate with a 25mx8m machinery shed with a concrete floor. Power is available from the pole right beside the structure.
A sizeable, unpowered, hay shed also contains 3 stables and a tack room.
The yards are only fair, of timber construction, (some steel panels), with a head bale, scales and loading ramp.
The home is a quaint 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, weatherboard cottage, which is strong and sturdy and would certainly renovate into something special. There is a small workshop and carport adjacent.
However there are numerous homesites on the block which provide stunning views to the surrounding countryside for those wishing to upgrade.
Overall, this is one of the best small grazing blocks in the district and demands your inspection.
