Country: Although mostly a cattle operation in the present ownership, Tippendale has been a traditional cattle sheep grazing property. The country is all flat, predominately red loam soils some sandy areas (Box, Yellow Jacket, Wilga, Sandlewood, Pine & Mulga, etc) with areas grey, some with melon holes (Brigalow, Belah).
Vegetation Status: Excellent veg map, PMAV locked in, mostly white.
Cultivation. No current cultivation although some neighbouring properties have substantial farming areas.
Water Supply: Stock water comes under pressure (no pumping) from the neighbouring capped Tippendale South artesian bore (Gabsi bore drilled to 1200 m) good pressure through 90 mm poly pipe back to 40 mm, feeds approx 29 tanks and troughs. Bore water and rainwater connected to house. Additional sub bore at house, can join into main line if needed. No yearly water fees.
Fencing & Subdivision: The property is well fenced into 11 paddock plus 2 holding paddocks. All grazing paddocks connect to the main cattle yards via a lane way system. Fencing is all steel suspension fencing of 6 wires including two barbs or 4 barbs. Steel end assemblies etc.
Structural Improvements: Modern timber/hardiplank homestead of 4 bedrooms, two bathroom, large open veranda facing north, air con, heating etc. Established lawns and garden in fenced yard with separate 9 x 20m colour bond workshop/garage. Adjacent to the house is the large steel cattle yards (work 600 head) with fixed vet crush with scales and race, portable panels for outer yards, 4 way drafting pound, and water connected.
Livestock: All weaner cattle treated with 5 in 1 at weaning, cows and heifers treated yearly with 7 in 1.
Livestock: A backgrounding steer to 250 – 300 kg to 10 acres or a breeding cow to 20 to 25 acres in normal seasons, could dramatically increase numbers with fodder cropping.
Comments: The property is well developed with a good cover of Buffel and native pasture – again mustering is a breeze with easy access to yards via mustering squares and laneway system.
