Genset capable of powering homestead complex. Underground power – the complex has complete underground power Country: Greentop runs north from a frontage of about 6km to Euri creek on its southern boundary. Overall the country runs from large areas of creek flats off Euri Creek and Sheep Station Creek to undulating and hilly forest country with range country in the north-western and western sections of the property. Soils range from alluvial creek flat loams to gravelly and sandy duplex types to areas of darker heavier soils on the north and north-eastern sides. Splitters and Sheep Station Creek systems have their headwaters on Greentop. Greentop is predominantly timbered with Narrow leaf Ironbark, Moreton Bay Gum, Bloodwood, Poplar Gum, Beefwood and Blue Gum plus scattered Quinine, Tea Tree, Wattle and Cocky Apple. Pastures species include Urachloa, Indian Couch, Forest Mitchell, and a substantial impact of Seca & Verano Stylos and Wynn Cassia in areas. Rhodes grass has been planted on creek flats. Woody Weeds: There are scattered areas of Lantana, Rubbervine and Chinee Apple which is generally well controlled via a consistent weed control programme. PMAV: There is approximately 1000ha (2500acres) of Category X (white) locked in with a certified PMAV. There are also two timber thinning permits covering a combined 4200ha. Water: Stockwater is provided by 9 bores with tanks which supply 24 troughs. There is a small contribution from seasonal waterholes and four very small dams. Essentially the piped stockwater is a significant tool used to manage and muster the herd. Euri Creek is fenced out of the property for management reasons however Greentop does have riparian water rights for livestock and domestic purposes. Bores range in depth from approx 18 to 36m and water supply quality and quantity is good. The two bores at the house have mains power and supply both the homestead complex and stockwater needs. The bores around the runs are mostly powered by petrol motors but could be converted to solar if desired. Cattle: The Brahman and Brahman Cross herd included in the sale is of high quality and quite temperament. Predominantly the herd is a grey brahman breeder base with Grey brahman Bulls however, Charbray Bulls have been in the herd for approximately 6 years so there is now a Charbray influence thorough the younger breeders. The herd for sale comprises approx 400 females (12mths and older) and approx 10-15 bulls plus progeny. The herd is not age branded and are joined on a continuous mating basis. Additionally there is approx 90 mixed age steers available, but if available at the time may be included by negotiation. Plant & Machinery: Included is a comprehensive list of plant and machinery including Dozer, trucks, utes, tractors and bikes. All gear is older and well used but has been properly maintained. Vendor comments: Greentop is operated as a Brahman breeding property which, depending on season, can run up to 800-1000 mixed breeding females with progeny to weaners. With further areas established to Seca Stylo and improved pastures carrying capacity would be further enhanced. Very little lick (supplementary feeding) is used however Molasses is discreetly used from time to time. Currently the property has a good body of grass. Disclaimer: The above report has been prepared by Slaney & Co based on information supplied by the property owner and other credible sources. Every endeavour has been made to verify its accuracy. Whilst we trust the information to be correct, we make no warranties or guarantees and prospective purchasers must rely on their own enquiries & research.
