If you are looking for grazing country with permanent water, good access and excellent proximity to major livestock marketing centres in the region, then "Constitution" is a property worth your consideration.

"Constitution" comprises 998 acres (404 hectares) and is located at Little Billabong, 30km north of Holbrook on the eastern side of the Hume Highway, 38km south of Tarcutta and 62km south east of Wagga Wagga.

Priced at $2,850,000, the property features 240 acres of phalaris, clover and ryegrass pastures, with the balance being perennial native grasses.

Standing timber includes red gum, yellow and red box, which provides good shade and shelter for livestock being run on the property.

The land itself comprises undulating country, rising to the top of Constitution Hill, which sits at 556m above sea level.

Soils are a mix of decomposed granite and red granite, with brown loams that have been well managed, tested and regularly fertilised.

There is an excellent water supply to the property, with a permanent spring that feeds a local creek, seven dams, a solar-powered bore pumping at 12,600 litres per hour and supplying two poly tanks with reticulation to four troughs in what is a 700mm rainfall district.

The land is fenced to four main paddocks and there is also a holding paddock at the cattle yards. Fencing is predominantly hinge joint or netting and barb on steel posts, and in good to excellent stock-proof condition.

These steel cattle yards have an undercover work area, crush and a loading ramp.

There is also a set of sheep yards and a 40-tonne self-emptying silo.

For those wanting to build their ultimate home, "Constitution" has a dwelling entitlement and with several picturesque building site options to help make their dream come true.

Power is available to the property but is currently not connected.

The vendors have run 240 spring calving Angus breeders over a long-term period.

The 2019 calves were weaned and relocated recently and there are now 80 breeders remaining on the property, which can be moved as soon as possible if required.

For those thinking of the logistics of using "Constitution" for its grazing potential, the property is in close proximity to Wagga or Barnawartha, meaning it is within easy distance of the Northern Victoria Livestock Exchange (NVLX, Barnawartha) and Wagga Wagga Livestock Marketing Centre (LMC).

Inspections of "Constitution" are strictly by appointment with the agent, Sally Douglas on 0428 826 645.
