This well-established and maintained livestock farm is situated in the well-known and popular Normandien area, ±50 km outside Newcastle. Strong commercial neighbours.
This top-quality stand-alone beef farm with deep soils of arable lands is suitable for winter fodder and silage/grain production. More arable lands planted with smutsfinger and pasture grasses in line with the current operation and a high-carrying capacity veld, with high yields.
The 4 arable camps have been precision farmed for 7 years. There are 17 grazing camps and the farm can run mature animals plus followers. The current model is to calve in Autumn and grow the oxen out to 300kgs and market direct to abattoirs as A-grade carcasses. There is an automated feeding shed for animals, manageable by one operator.
The farm infrastructure consists of a large steel cattle handling facility with 16 compartments, a feed storage, milling and mixing operation with attendant grain silos and molasses tanks; a lockable tractor shed, an interlink storage shed with lockable stores for tyres, spares and fencing wire, a hay shed with a stationary bale shredder/chopper, and a large open-sided trailer shed for all implements and trailers to be parked undercover.
The farm is very well watered and has 5 boreholes, of which 2 are electrically equipped, 2 are equipped by windmills and 1 is capped. One borehole pumps into a 23 000 litre metal tank on the hill above the infrastructure and water gravitates down to the feedlot and yard infrastructure from there. Overflow water goes to the farm drinking troughs.
A strong spring is pumped into a cement reservoir and all overflow is piped into an earth dam.
There is an excellent dam site at the confluence of 3 streams which would allow for irrigation if a licence was applied for.
