Roger River DairyDAIRY: This is a large parcel, approximately 665 hectares (1,643 acres) of quality dairy land in a very reliable high rainfall area (average 1,514mm per annum). With a current clearing permit (FPP) to convert a further 80ha (200 acres) of timbered land to pasture, Roger River Dairy still has a considerable amount of potential to be realised.
The property has a wide and varied soil type, ranging from red basalt to river silt loams with some areas clay based. Contour is level to a very gentle undulation. The Montagu River traverses the property. There are also bores used for stock water.
Fixed Improvements include a 50 unit rotary dairy, 3 good homes, large calf rearing shed, machinery shed and 2 hay barns.
Production: For the 17/18 season this property milked 930 cows producing 400,000+kg milk solids with 1 tonne of grain fed per cow. The projection for the 18/19 season, with similar feeding, is to milk 1,120 cows for 450 to 470,000kg milk solids.
Dairy stock, including 300 yearling heifers and 35 bulls, would also be available to the successful purchaser at valuation.
RUNOFF BLOCK: Approximately 237 hectares (585 acres) of quality red basalt land, a good balance of the higher red soil with the lower flats hump and hollowed river flat country.
Improvements include a 4 bedroom weatherboard home, large dam, underground bore, numerous sheds and buildings plus stockyards.
This property is well suited for vegetable cropping, dairy conversion or maybe a high quality beef fattening operation.
Just a few minutes from Smithton in the very reliable rainfall area that Circular Head is renowned for.
