The outstanding breeding and finishing grazing property Stonywell is being offered for sale by Expressions of Interest. Containing 1960 hectares, Stonywell is located 40 kms South of Meningie adjacent the Princes Highway and the world renowned Coorong.
With its proximity to the Coorong, Stonywell experiences a Mediterranean climate, with mild conditions suitable for quality Lucerne pastures and the ability to finish stock for about eight months of the year.
Stonywell has a good balance of flats and gentle rises interspersed with native vegetation providing a very picturesque property with mild summers and cool winters.
Stonywell has been held by the current owner for 50 years and has been very well managed since the beginning of clearing in the late 1960’s, with pasture renovation, weed management and consistent maintenance of quality, high producing Lucerne, veldt grass and clover pastures. There is an application of approximately 100 tonne of fertilizer annually. Stonywell has always produced quality livestock.
The central rubbled laneway allows easy access for machinery and ease of livestock movement, with very well maintained fencing.
The substantial improvements include two three bedroom double brick homes in good condition, excellent shedding, two sets of cattle yards plus a smaller set of yards for heifer calving. There is a four stand shearing shed with steel sheep yards.
Stonywell is reliably serviced with mains water that is equipped with a solar powered leak detection unit. The poly mains line is fed through the central raceway to concrete tanks and concrete cattle troughs.
The quality Angus self-replacing cattle herd consists of breeders, replacement heifers, steers and bulls, which are all available to purchase with the property.
With beef production the primary commodity of Stonywell, several livestock marketing options are in place. The property is perfectly positioned to take advantage of regional cattle marketing centres at Naracoorte and Mount Gambier and the direct marketing to meat works and feedlots in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Southern Queensland.
The property is situated in what is recognised as a 500mm average district rainfall area.
Stonywell is a carefully managed high producing property which offers a solid, large scale cattle breeding and livestock farming operation.
It currently runs a quality herd of cattle and is also suitable for sheep breeding with excellent pastures to finish prime lambs.
