Balanced Southgate grazing block
149 Boormans Lane, Southgate NSW 2460
Secure a rare 225 acre grazing property on the Clarence River floodplain and some all important flood-free hillside with this well-balanced block at Southgate.
Comprising approximately 60 acres floodplain with the balance of 165 acres rising to undulating hill country, the vendors state a carrying capacity of 90 breeders.
The farm has been designed on natural sequence farming principles and run with holistic management to focus on hydrology, ground cover preservation and top soil improvement.
Boasting 17 paddocks, 7 dams and town water to 5 troughs, this is a highly developed grazing operation in terms of infrastructure, with scope for further improvement and more intensive practices should the new owners wish.
The home is a two bedroom, two bathroom layout with excellent insulation and air-flow due to the cathedral-pitched ceilings and construction materials.
The fully self sufficient home runs on an 8KW solar system with lithium ion batteries and a seperate solar hot water system on the roof.
While the 12 year old home was built to be off the grid, the location is anything but, with an easy 20 minute run into Grafton and the benefit of town water, council rubbish collection, NBN, and school bus.
Another bonus is the machinery shed with concrete floor, lock-up workshop and an annex with bathroom and tack room.
The pastures are approximately one third Rhodes grass and Setaria on the ridge country, with the flood plain predominantly Paspalum and Couch. The middle belt is currently sown down to annual Ryegrass and Oats to bridge the winter feed gap.
Timber cattle yards with good access feature an undercover race and hydraulic head bale.

Mid-sized and productive farms such as this are hard to come by in today’s market and with the impending up-swing in the cattle market they will only get harder to find.
