AN AGGREGATION of seven properties on the southern slopes of New South Wales is on offer with the listing of a cropping-focused mixed-farming operation.
Being marketed as the Southern Riverina Aggregation by Inglis Rural Property through an expressions-of-interest (EOI) campaign, the spread covers 4174 hectares and enjoys an average annual winter-dominant rainfall of 550 millimetres.
The aggregation’s cornerstone is Bulgandra, a 2161ha property which is 94-per-cent arable at Walbundrie, with the next-biggest component, Warrawillah at Culcairn, covering 1019ha and being 88pc arable.
Its smaller blocks are located at Culcairn and Henty, and range in size from 123ha and to 269ha, with arable area at 92-97pc.
Southern Riverina Aggregation has been used for continuous winter-crop production with opportunistic grazing, and is 92pc arable overall.
All fencing remains intact to ensure efficient grazing of crops and stubbles.
Bulgandra is described as a dryland row-crop enterprise with attractive economies of scale and efficient paddock configuration.
Its high-quality soils range from grey alluvials to well-drained red-brown earths.
Bulgandra sits 60 kilometres north of Albury and 115km south of Wagga Wagga, and fronts Billabong Creek.
Additional water comes from two equipped stock-and-domestic bores, a 7-megalitre Water Access Licence from Billabong Creek, and surface dams.
Crop now in the ground at Bulgandra comprises 906ha of wheat, 241ha of barley, 875ha of canola, and improvement include five machinery sheds, a hayshed and workshop, a three-stand shearing shed and 300 tonnes of permanent grain storage.
All properties within the aggregation have a strong track record for grain and canola production, and are very well suited to sheep and cattle fattening and prime lamb production.
The first stage of EOI on Bulgandra closes 16 September.
