Land and outbuildings

The land, on c.140ac, is level, currently in grass and is extremely well fenced. With the exception of half an acre situated across the road from the entrance, the land is set out in one block that features six primary divisions.

One of the fields extends to c.63ac and this is subdivided into three paddocks. Another comprises c.28ac, while there is a c.16ac field located adjacent to the yard.

All fields contain large troughs that are piped with water from a private well. There is also a natural water course which runs along two boundaries.

The farmyard, which can be independently accessed from the road, features a range of slatted and loose-bedded housing.

These include:

  • An eight-bay cattle shed;
  • A three-bay slatted shed;
  • A machinery shed;
  • A bull pen;
  • Seven stables; and
  • A three-bay round-roof shed with two adjoining lean-tos used to store hay and straw.

The eight-bay cattle shed contains two large loose-bedded divisions which are fronted by a covered slatted easy feed; it is fully fitted with calving pens, an indoor cattle crush and a handling area, and can accommodate up to 150 cattle.

There is also the yard which incorporates a large concrete area to store silage bales, a concrete dungstead with an adjoining effluent tank, extensive outdoor handling facilities and a large feed bin.
