The 'Ossory' Aggregation is tightly held Bogan River country, owned and operated by the Lloyd Family since 1918. The family have run a successful wool and lamb operation on the property and more recently, transitioned to focusing on mass crop production. One of the outstanding features of the aggregation is the soil quality; the soft and highly fertile, grey self mulching soil is renowned throughout the Bogan River area of Narromine. The properties are 90% arable and there are areas of red loams. These reddish soils are soft fluffy types and highly regarded by the owners.
All structural improvements are on 'Ossory' with the Federation Homestead set amongst established trees and garden, watered by a 16 station automatic watering system. Wrap around verandahs and high ceilings give the homestead true character. The accommodation is four bedrooms and office with a second shower and toilet in the laundry. The homestead enjoys ducted reverse cycle air conditioning and wood heating, modern lock up double garage plus double carport and large garden shed in house yard. There is also an inground pool set amongst the grounds. Working infrastructure includes a 24mx18m steel frame and ironclad machinery shed and 5 x 75 tonne HE cone based silos, one horse stable and yard. There is a three bedroom workers cottage with separate laundry, with air conditioning and wood heating.
The sheep infrastructure includes a 3 stand shearing shed and steel and timber yards - the sheep improvements have not been in use for a considerable time. A maintenance program would be required to bring these facilities into full operation.
There are 4 dams on 'Ossory' and 1 dam on 'Gilgambeth'. There is an equipped Bore at the 'Ossory' homestead which feeds to the troughs via an overhead tank. This Bore provides water to 'Gilgambeth' with 2 troughs connected. The large dam, some 25,000m to the South of the homestead is equipped with a solar pump and pumps water to the 'house dam' where this water is then pumped and filtered for use around the garden.
There is an airstrip located on 'Gilgambeth'. The natural fall and contouring of the country allows for free drainage in wetter years. While primarily a cropping operation in recent times the property could revert to a sheep grazing operation with some upgrading of fencing and infrastructure. 'Ossory' is subdivided into 11 paddocks (ranging in size from 40 acres to 1,000 acres). 'Gilgambeth' is subdivided into 3 paddocks.
The 'Ossory' Aggregation being soft myall/belah country has been a production powerhouse. Inspect with confidence.
