About this listing
Avalon is situated forty three kilometres west of Wagga Wagga and offers feed security and production capacity.

Land comprises river flats to gently undulating country, biologically managed fertile red loam and black alluvial soils offer a productive base for grazing, cropping or fodder production enterprises.

154Ha* arable, of which 48Ha* is irrigated from the Murrumbidgee by a Southern Cross pump with Hatz diesel generator driving an Upton Centre pivot with 6" PVC underground mains to 3 concrete pivot pads of 16Ha* each.
This year the pivots of Lucerne and rye were oversown with oats. Two circles have had their first cut of hay producing 7t/ha, these circles are now being watered for a second cut of lucerne. The third circle was watered early then grazed. The vendor has worked that pivot this month post the 50mm of rain received in November and the lucerne has responded well.

20ML Murrumbidgee general security WAL; 10ML Murrumbidgee stock & domestic WAL; stock & domestic riparian river right; Davey pump equipped with time of use meter on 50mm mains supplies 90,000lt tank, seven troughs and the garden plus there are three dams, a billabong and an unequipped well.

Avalon has been biologically managed since 2006; this approach designed to establish deep rooted perennial grasses that build soil carbon and sequester atmospheric nitrogen. The approach encourages soil microbiology to unlock nutrients, while inputs have been sourced to balance nutrient ratios; these have included soft rock phosphate, infused with sulphur, boron humates and gypsum and lime applications. Foliar application of kelp has been used to increase frost resistance and increase growth with the gibberellic acid component.

Avalon has healthy productive soils with beneficial soil biology, above average soil carbon levels and active plant species throughout the entire year, which enables grazing year round. From 2008- 2017 annually in April/May the arable land has had 1.2t/ha gypsum, 7kg/ha boron humates and 120kg/ha soft rock phosphate applied by spreader. The dryland area is sown to established perennial pastures and an area of 22ha of oats was sown this year.

In recent years the vendor has cut hay from established Lucerne and rye utilising the existing irrigation infrastructure and run a beef operation turning off progeny at 450kg in 11 months, currently the vendor is running 30 cows with calves at foot and 45 weaners.

Fenced to 7 main paddocks, majority ring lock, steel cattle yards have concrete race & ramp and 2 weaner yards, ample shedding includes powered machinery shed with concrete floored workshop and two other storage sheds.

A three bedroom cottage completes this package. The interior has been updated; timber floors and an open plan kitchen add warmth to this country character home. The weatherboard home is freshly painted and sits amongst established trees in a well maintained garden.
