Jireena is a well-known and well-respected property with diverse country strong enough to both breed and fatten all stock categories, and cattle breeds.

Location: 

Jireena is well located as a breeding property to suit southern, central, north-western and eastern growing and fattening enterprises. By road … 75 km South of Prairie, 280 km from Charters Towers and approx 400km west of Townsville.

Depending on the cattle breed and stock category, markets include meatworks to the east and central, live export destinations in Charters Towers, Townsville and Cloncurry and Feedlot feeder-weight markets to the south.

Area and Tenure:

23,402.26ha (57803.6acres)

Additional area Stock Route approximately 5141acres.

Total usable … 62944 acres

Three titles: GHPL

Services:

Rural Power, satellite internet and twice weekly mail.

Liveweight scales at Charters Towers, Hughenden, Winton, Longreach, Barcaldine and Blackall.

Rainfall:  

500.6mm 

Tick Status:

Jireena is in a tick free area therefore enabling immediate movement, without scratching or treatments, to other tick free locations throughout QLD.

Country:

Jireena is blessed with a diverse mix of soil and vegetation types. Towerhill creek bisects the property in a north-south direction with water running south to the channel country. Fertile Towerhill Creek frontage runs to Boree, broken Gidyea, Bauhinia black soil plains, open red soil forest with Ironbark, Bloodwood, Emu Apple, Desert Oak and areas of pulled Gidyea all contribute to the diverse pasture productivity.

Jireena has been conservatively stocked, in recent years, so following a good season in 2022 and now a good wet season in 2023, pasture density and productivity is currently at its best. Introduced pasture species include good stands of Buffel and Stylo’s complimenting the native species of Mitchell, Flinders, Kangaroo, Spinifex and White Spear grass. The usual browse is available and valuable winter herbages proliferate in the better seasons.      

Infrastructure:

Undoubtedly a feature of Jireena is the homestead complex.

Homestead:

Jireena homestead is spacious and set in a very well-presented shaded garden. Large established shade trees and fruit trees make this an attractive setting and undoubted a pleasant place to live.

The 5-bedroom homestead is airconditioned and is complimented by a smaller cottage, within the same garden complex.  The cottage is used infrequently, by visitors, and does require some renovation or updating.

Sheds:

The are three sheds nearby the homestead used for storage, vehicles and workshop.

Yards:

There are 2 sets of yards.

Main Yards: The main yards at the homestead are a feature of Jireena. Of steel construction and built in approximately 2005, they include full undercover drafting, branding areas, extensive yard space and an outside circular yard enabling efficient stock movement around the working areas. Due also to the large cable coolers leading into the yards, the estimated working capacity is 1000 head handled comfortably.

Top Yards: A comprehensive cattle yard these a constructed of portable panels with covered working areas including crush and branding facilities. The yards are nicely shaded and are serviced by large coolers and a laneway.

Fencing:

The property is fenced into 22 mains paddocks, plus several holding paddocks, and the fencing is generally very good … some excellent. All recent fencing is 3-barb with steel end assemblies, strainers and gates while older fencing is a mix of steel and gidyea posts.

Water:

Again, a major feature of Jireena is water.

With 4 bores, extensive use of polypipe (50mm), tanks and almost 40 troughs the property is well watered. The 7 dams compliment the system and does Towerhill creek in the season.

Carrying Capacity:

Vendor indicates a carrying capacity of 2500 mixed cattle (mix breeders plus followers) in an average season.
