“Birrabee Park” Property Utilisation

A genuine mixed farming property in a proven mixed farming district allowing management to place emphasis on cattle breeding or finishing, prime lamb production or a selected cropping program. The combination of improved pastures, the subdivision, the water system and working improvements allow for any of the above mentioned enterprises to commence immediately. The property has been and remains today as supporting a prime lamb enterprise with a proven stocking rate of 350 to 400 ewes on a conservative basis. It is suggested that the property would seem ideal to continue with this easily managed enterprise and because of the water and the topography would seem ideal for supplementary feeding of lambs. The options are many, particularly a seed stock enterprise whether it be cattle, sheep or horses.
