North Queensland’s Ausgold Hay listed for sale

A highly productive, 39ha hay farm near Australia’s live cattle export capital in North Queensland is going to market.

Ausgold Hay is located on Webb Road in Majors Creek, just off the Flinders Highway and approximately 50km south of the Port of Townsville.

The laser-levelled property features a large body of Rhodes grass, with the vendor reporting production of roughly 4,000 round bales per cut, and planted legumes including Wynn Cassia and Siratro.

The property has previously produced lucerne, soy, sunflowers and navy beans.

Majors Creek is well-connected to the cattle industry, including JBS Meatworks, live export grouping yards, feedlots and the Charters Towers saleyards.

The region receives average annual rainfall of 1,185mm, while the property has unlimited access to high-quality underground bore water.

Ausgold Hay’s plant and equipment, including three tractors, mower, rake, disc and spreader, is available for purchase by negotiation.

The property features bitumen road frontage with semi-trailer access, near both the Flinders and Bruce Highways.

CBRE Agribusiness’s Angus Bills and Phil Schell are managing the sale campaign, with Expressions of Interest invited before 4pm AEST on April 28 2022.

“Ausgold Hay is an ideal entry-level farm, or add-on property for an operator with existing beef or hay operations,” Mr Schell said.

Mr Bills added: “With the property benefiting from fertile soils, idyllic climate, water security and a strategic location near Townsville, we are expecting significant interest.”
