ABOUT 40 kilometres north east of Lake King is a large-scale mixed farming operation with massive well built and maintained infrastructure which demonstrates the pride and passion the owners have shown in the property's development.

The property consists of 6643 hectares of thoughtfully cleared farmland providing a total cropping area of 4786 ha or grazing area of 4850 ha, on six titles.

Julstroy Farms is divided into two separate properties - Julstroy East and Julstroy West.

Julstroy East is 4176ha and presents itself well with its wide entrance from Mulcahy Road onto a wide laneway leading to the main sheds, yards, office complex and homestead.

Infrastructure includes large machinery sheds, massive workshop with mezzanine floor and pit, fertiliser shed and a purpose-built chemical shed with the concrete floor built to contain a spill.

All the sheds have solid reinforced concrete floors with high trusses.

While the electricity grid is available, the sheds have been powered by a bank of solar panels plus a three phase 88 kiloWatt generator.

The sheds fill numerous large rainwater tanks with a total holding capacity of about 750,000 litres.

Other rainwater capture points are spread about the property on other buildings.

A near-new set of Aussie sheepyards with a working capacity for 2500 sheep sits at the top of the main entrance with its adjoining feedlot pens all watered from a large key dam equipped with a solar pump.

The pump provides capacity not only for watering the sheep and the yards but to a purpose-built truck washdown facility alongside the yards.

The paddocks have been linked with a system of laneways, wide enough for the large machinery to pass through, and convenient enough to drive large mobs of sheep.

All 17 paddocks are watered by dams and/or a good soak, they are well fenced with mostly seven-line griplock on galvanised posts.

The homestead is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom, rural-style with its verandahs and sweeping views north east towards Digger Rocks.

Julstroy East has a separate office complex plus workers' accommodation and mess hut within the main infrastructure complex while off Carstairs Road sits a two-bedroom home for staff plus a four-bedroom donga for itinerant workers.

Julstroy West is a recent acquisition and is within 7km of the Lake Varley bin.

The property will be offered for sale by public auction either as a whole or in two parts on Friday, December 10 at 1.30pm at the Lake King Tavern unless sold prior.
