COMMENTS; 12 inches of rain during December & January , now lightly stocked with a great body of feed overall , top class property with a great variety of pasture and soil types on which cattle do extremely well. The property has been managed on a rotational grazing basis ensuring that pastures are rested for long periods, thus improving soil health, increasing soil carbon and overall biodiversity. The current owners have undertaken many improvements and pasture development initiatives, however there is still potential to further increase carrying capacity.
the last ‘meat’ photo relates to a marble score 9 striploin entered in the Wagyu branded beef completion at the world Wagyu conference in Yeppoon in May . This steer was bred on this property and finished at Kerwee feedlot for about 380 days.
