Fencing and Yards:
During the previous five seasons Grassville has been carrying out an extensive fencing program to complement the new fencing from the previous ten years.
New fences have been constructed using Weston Fencing. This is fully electric enabling the management of livestock to be done with absolute control.
A mixture of 5 and 6 line (17km) electric has been completed along with 20-30kms of Weston fence electric out rigging which has been added to high grade suspension fencing. It has been completed to enable the management of livestock to be controlled in management zones. All but a small amount of boundary has been either re-fenced or had electric out rigging fitted.
Approximately 20km of 6 and 7 line stock lock has also been added to existing fence on Grassville.
There are out yards, all of which have either been upgraded or rebuilt, grids enabling easy access for management of all regions of the property, numerous holding compounds for portable setup and trapping of livestock, enabling excellent stock handling.
There is a 4 bedroom homestead situated on Grassville. This particular residence is dated and, whilst utilized in part for accommodation, is not of a particularly high quality. It could however be upgraded.
A steel framed and galvanized iron clad, four stand shearing shed with Lister motor and steel sheep yards.
