The sale of “Davalack Downs” provides options for smaller graziers or those looking for a large lifestyle retreat with facilities to handle either cattle or sheep, or as an ideal addition to “Mossdale” only 4 kms away, which would enhance the flexibility of sheep/cattle facilities, and further capacity. The incoming owners will take advantage of great cover of feed due to being lightly stocked and the huge amount of renovation and pasture development/renovation which is benefiting from great seasonal conditions.
