The property sits across three titles about 6.5km north-west of Bordertown with access to the highway, livestock markets and processors.

The agents, Spence Dix & Co, describe it as a "high production grazing and fodder-producing block with the ability to finish livestock".

Taralye is being sold with a valuable 227,686KL water licence with 100,479KL flood delivery included. There’s also scope for further irrigation expansion.

In terms of crops, the agents say the high-production, well-drained country is good, strong and flexible for grazing, hay, crop, lucerne and other small seeds production. It could easily grow up to 1000 tonnes of out-of-season fodder.

Outstanding crops in 2016/17 were: wheat – 6.5 tonnes per hectare (average) and canola – 3.2 (44.7 per cent oil) with four equipped bores; approximately 28ha lucerne under flood irrigation and 32ha in four centre-pivot sites; and 16ha lucerne and 16ha sub clover from two centre pivots.

"The soil treatments, fertiliser history, pasture, and crop and irrigation rotations have all combined to put Taralye in such great productive heart, with proven performance," Spence Dix & Co says.

"The irrigation options – including both flood and centre pivots, multiple equipped bores and the valuable water licence – are well utilised."

Improvements on the property include three homes, raised board shearing shed, implement and workshop shed, hay shed, sheep yards and a silo.

"The structural improvements support the on-farm activities, and the great access and close proximity to Bordertown makes Taralye such a unique agricultural opportunity that is performing to a high standard."

A long history of good inputs, top management and outstanding production makes Taralye a must-inspect property.

And the price you’d pay? Including the water licence, Taralye is $1.75 million, reduced from $1.875 million. If desired, it can also be bought as bare prime cropping land without the irrigation licence and infrastructure.
