Glenroy, in the Parkes-Forbes district, has had a long history of improved pastures utilised to finish lambs. The property is equally well suited to cropping with the vendor producing up to 26 bags of prime hard wheat per acre (5
tons/ha) in recent years.
After a long history of pastures and regular fertiliser applications this country is primed for great results. Michael and Margaret Willmott are selling to scale back their livestock enterprise that has mainly been breeding and finishing prime lambs in conjunction with some opportunistic trading of sheep. They produced a long line of large well-bred first cross ewes and second cross prime lambs that are finished on the pastures.
Earlier this year, prior to the jump in lamb prices, the vendors sold grass fed lambs for over $180/head. On today’s market these lambs could be worth as much as $280/head.
With export lambs selling for up to $344/head there has never been a better time to buy a well improved property like Glenroy. The established pastures are mainly a mix of lucerne, clovers, chicory, plantain and ryegrass. In addition, there is 40 ha of oats included in the sale, plus a paddock of clover with one paddock of long fallow.
The majority of the land is cleared and has a park like scattering of Yellowbox and Rivergums. Other assets include a neat two stand woolshed, quality sheepyards, a silo and excellent dams with good catchment. For more information contact Ainslie Toole at Landmark Harcourts o 0407 946 838.
