Country:

The country on Eildon Park, The Don, Mayneside and Elvo Stations is diverse with a very good mix of flood-out channel country, open mitchell grass downs country, soft gidyea timbered country, mulga woodlands, open mulga and browse bush flats, soft edible     spinifex areas as well as areas of porcupine spinifex on the stoney escarpment and range country.

There are large areas of very good flood-out creek channels along the three main creek systems: Paddy’s, McKenzie and Cattle Creeks as well as numerous other small creek     systems and the Mayne River system. This country is timbered mostly with a mix of mulga, mineritchie and gidyea trees with creek wilgas, coolibah and bauhinia trees along the banks of the channels.

The grazing along these flood-out channels is quite substantial with the McKenzie Creek running for 65km from the top of The Don down through Eildon Park and into the Mayne River.

Paddy’s Creek runs for 33km through Eildon Park and Elvo into the McKenzie Creek.

Cattle Creek runs for approximately 23km through Mayneside and Eildon Park into the McKenzie Creek.

The Mayne River runs for approximately 36km through Mayneside and Eildon Park out into Mt Windsor.

There is approximately 23,000 hectares or 57,000 acres of open downs country in the valley on Elvo. This country is mostly red to chocolate coloured pebbly cracking soil that has mitchell, flinders and native summer grass as well as edible summer herbages, salines and forbs such as pigweed, copper, spinach, gidyea burr and saltbush growing across it. This country is lightly timbered with gidyea along the fringe of the downs and has numerous small gidyea lined creeks running across the downs.

There are several other areas of open downs country scattered throughout the properties that carry a good body of mitchell and flinders grass. There are also many other large     areas of semi-open red downs country that has mostly summer native grasses with summer herbages and forbs and this country is mostly lightly timbered with western bloodwood, beefwood, gidyea and mulga trees as well as turkey and cassia bush.

The majority of the grazing country on the aggregation would be best described as soft gently sloping mulga woodlands that is grassed with wiregrass, neverfail and windmill grass as well as summer as mulga lands with low hills, shallow red soils and stoney outcrops.herbages, forbs and salines. This country is light carrying but very quick responding to both small and large rainfall events. There are scattered areas of gidyea, poplar box, false sandalwood as well as mulga lands with low hills, shallow red soils and stoney outcrops.

There are areas of semi-open red desert country that is lightly timbered with eucalypt and mulga trees and has ground cover of softer edible spinifex and a mix of summer grasses and herbages.

The stoney range and escarpment country is mainly timbered with many different species of eucalypt trees as well as mulga, mineritchie, bendee and lancewood trees. This country has mostly native summer grasses, herbages and spinifex growing plus the browse bushes and trees to graze on when required in dry conditions. This is the country that supplies the run-off water to flood-out the numerous creek systems throughout the properties. Buffel grass has been slowly spreading along some of the channels over the years.

Waters:

There are in excess of 20 dams and 50 waterholes strategically spread across all four   properties. Many of the water holes have been cleaned out and enlarged over the years making them secure seasonal waterholes. Most of these waterholes are in the many creeks and major watercourses that usually part fill or fill following the first storms of the season. The type of country that these creeks traverse lends itself to good run-off.

There are many major and minor creeks on the aggregation including but not limited to the Mayne River, McKenzie Creek, Paddy’s Creek, Cattle Creek, North Creek, Valley Creek, Coppii Creek, Surveyors Creek, Gum Creek, Emu Creek, Cork Creek, Burnett Creek, Blackrock Creek and Packsaddle Creek.

The two operational bores are located on Elvo and a well on Eildon Park:

‘Jumbo Bore’ (locally known as Desparate Bore) was drilled in 1946 to a depth of 114     metres. This bore is equipped with a submersible pump and gen-set and only used when required. It has the capacity to water approximately 1000 head if required.

‘Desparate Bore’ (locally known as Elvo House Bore) was drilled in 1946 to a depth of 18 metres and serves the homestead. It has the capacity to water approximately 150 head if required.

‘Eildon Well’ is located in the corner of Charlies, Desert and Surveyors paddocks and is only equipped with a poly tank and used if and when required, which is not very often.

Water is pumped by windmill into a poly tank at Ballards Dam and gravity fed to a turkeys nest and two troughs that water Weaner or Aero and Bullock paddocks.

Water is pumped by a windmill at the large house waterhole in Paddys Creek into two overhead tanks that supply the homestead garden, domestic use if required and small holding paddocks as well as the milking cow/horse yards and Eildon Park cattle yards.

There are some dams that are equipped with either windmills and turkeys nest or       portable pumps that connect to poly pipe and poly tanks that supply water to troughs at the cattle yards or dam enclosures. Such a setup is utilised to enable cattle to drink from troughs when dry conditions occur.

Homestead, Quarters & Buildings:

The Elvo homestead is a very solid and comfortable, 4 bedroom single story residence     constructed on stumps that is set in a well lawned yard.

A steel constructed carport/workshop that also houses the diesel electricity generator compliments the homestead complex. The diesel generator is an impressive unit that was only purchased in early July 2019.

The complex is serviced by both bore water to the house and dam water for the garden.

The main house has phone, satellite TV and satellite internet with Wi-Fi. It also has a UHF     system installed adjacent to the phone.

Rainfall:

The long term Winton district average is 400 mm or 16 inches. The long-term rainfall average for the Eildon Aggregation is approximately 300 to 350 mm or 12 to 14 inches based on local registered rainfall collection properties.

Yards & Fencing:

There are four main sets of large cattle yards with full cattle handling and trucking facilities:

 Eildon Park Trucking Yards are located approximately 1km from the homestead. The yard comprises a mixture of permanent steel post and rails and steel portable panels that has a 6 way draft, calf branding cradle, cattle crush with head bail, water tank and water trough in two yards.

 Elvo Trucking Yards is known as Doyle’s. It is a mixture of permanent steel post and rails with portable steel panels, a 6 way draft, calf branding cradle, cattle crush with head bail and one yard with water. It is situated approximately 5km off the Winton-Jundah Road in the area referred to as ‘The Valley’.

Cattle Creek Trucking Yards are a mixture of permanent steel post with steel rails or cable, portable steel panels complete with a 6 way draft, calf branding cradle, cattle crush and head bail and water in three yards. It is situated on the Mayneside Road approximately 35km from the Winton-Jundah Road.

Mayneside Trucking Yards are a mixture of timber post and rails as well as sections of     permanent and portable steel panels. These yards also have a 4 way draft, calf branding   cradle, cattle crush and head bail.

There are two smaller trucking yards that have the facilities to draft three ways with a race to process the bush breeder cows. These yards comprise of a combination of wire netting, portable steel panels and steel gates. They are located in the far north and far south of Eildon Park. They are known as Top Dam and Dellars Dam respectively.

There are 12 good solid holding yards strategically positioned throughout the aggregation to hold cattle overnight or as required. Portable panels and a portable loading ramp could be utilised at these yards to truck cattle if required.

There are 14 large paddocks and 12 holding paddocks. Elvo has two main paddocks and three holding paddocks. The Don is one large paddock with one holding paddock.       Mayneside is one large paddock with two holding paddocks. There is no boundary fence on the two sides where Mayneside joins Vergemont Station. The other 10 main paddocks are on Eildon Park as well as the 6 other holding paddocks.

There are also 25 water fenced enclosures throughout the aggregation.

Most of the fencing is in stock proof condition and is 3 barbs on steel pickets or 3 or 4 barbs on Gidyea post. Not all of the boundary fencing is in place as the natural landscape ranges act as a deterrent or has been fenced out. There is some ‘give and take’ fencing as once again the landscape dictates the most appropriate location where fences are erected.

Carrying Capacity:

The estimated carrying capacity of the Eildon Aggregation in an normal season is  approximately 3,500 to 4,000 breeders keeping progeny to weaning age or longer if the   season allows . Seasonal weather conditions ultimately determine cattle numbers.

Livestock, Plant & Equipment:

There will be minimal to no plant and equipment included in the sale. Portable cattle panels are included in the sale.

If all four properties are sold as an aggregation then the livestock will be included in the sale. The herd comprises Droughtmaster cross and Brahman cross breeders with a number of steers, heifers and calves still running with cows. Brahman bulls have been used along with Droughtmaster bulls for the last five years.

There has been a first round muster carried out on Elvo, Mayneside and the Garden Hole paddock and part of the Mayne paddock on Eildon Park in 2019. Vendor has not fully mustered north of the Mayneside Road for approximately 12 months. Therefore there are 12 to 18 month old cleanskins throughout the herd on this part of Eildon Park.

Vendor is not guaranteeing any cattle numbers with the sale. Intending purchasers are to make their own judgement of the cattle numbers running on the Eildon Aggregation.

 The Eildon Park, The Don and Mayneside component of the Aggregation is also offered for sale bare of livestock for those persons needing access to grass and not needing cattle.

Agents Remarks:

The Eildon Aggregation has a real diverse mixture of grazing country, ranging from very good quality open mitchell grass downs country, substantial areas of flood-out creek and river channels, quick responding sweet pebbly mulga and gidyea red soil woodlands with water shedding mulga country and stoney eucalypt and spinifex ranges.

I believe the diverse mixture of country compliments each other, making the Eildon Aggregation a relatively safe breeder property that also has the capacity to back ground weaners or fatten meatworks cattle. The water that runs off the high country is soaked up and utilized by the flood-out country as the water moves down through the properties, thus growing good fattening pasture. The mulga and other browse bushes as well as the herbages, salines and forbs that grow following small rainfall events all help make it a safe breeder block.

An opportunity to purchase a low running cost, relatively safe breeder and fattening  enterprise that is stocked with a quality herd of predominately Droughtmaster cross cattle that are in good store to prime condition.

Price

Asking $12,500,000 for the Eildon Park Aggregation’s land and livestock (cattle).

Eildon Park, The Don and Mayneside properties can be purchased as one package at a negotiated reduced rate bare of livestock (cattle), plant and equipment for those potential buyers who need access to grass and don’t require the livestock.

There has been a first round muster carried out on Elvo, Mayneside and the Garden Hole paddock and part of the Mayne paddock on Eildon Park in 2019. Vendor has not fully mustered north of the Mayneside Road for approximately 12 months. Therefore there are 12 to 18 month old cleanskins throughout the herd on this part of Eildon Park.

Vendor is not guaranteeing any cattle numbers with the sale. Intending purchasers are to make their own judgement of the cattle numbers running on the Eildon Aggregation.

 The Eildon Park, The Don and Mayneside component of the Aggregation is also offered for sale bare of livestock for those persons needing access to grass and not needing cattle.

Agents Remarks:

The Eildon Aggregation has a real diverse mixture of grazing country, ranging from very good quality open mitchell grass downs country, substantial areas of flood-out creek and river channels, quick responding sweet pebbly mulga and gidyea red soil woodlands with water shedding mulga country and stoney eucalypt and spinifex ranges.

I believe the diverse mixture of country compliments each other, making the Eildon Aggregation a relatively safe breeder property that also has the capacity to back ground weaners or fatten meatworks cattle. The water that runs off the high country is soaked up and utilized by the flood-out country as the water moves down through the properties, thus growing good fattening pasture. The mulga and other browse bushes as well as the herbages, salines and forbs that grow following small rainfall events all help make it a safe breeder block.

An opportunity to purchase a low running cost, relatively safe breeder and fattening  enterprise that is stocked with a quality herd of predominately Droughtmaster cross cattle that are in good store to prime condition.
