"Riverview" provides outstanding country suited to year-round dairying or could be easily converted for beef breeding and fattening or sheep meat.
Located on the eastern slopes of Mt Clay in 800mm-plus rainfall country, the property is split by the Fitzroy River with 365 acres and most improvements on the south side and 235 acres on the north side.
The extensive list of improvements include a modern four-bedroom family home, elevated yet well sheltered with superb views, an as-new 28 swing over herringbone dairy complete with automatic cup removers, 13,500-litre vat, automatic feed system including four silos and flood wash system with one large effluent pond, and 300-cow yard.
Two sets of steel cattle yards are in excellent order and hay and machinery sheds are strategically situated at either end of the property. There is also a large machinery/calf shed and fully enclosed and lockable workshop.
"Riverview" is securely watered by three bores, electric solar and a windmill together with double frontage to the Fitzroy River. Perennial pastures are well maintained and managed and topped up with annuals where required. Fodder crops such as maize, sorghum and rape are grown on the river country over the extended growing season.
