NEGOTIATIONS are continuing on the Nugent family’s 662 hectare (1634 acre) Jimbour property Wyalong, which was passed in at auction for $4.1 million.
Wyalong, managed by Martin Nugent for the family, is a picturesque and highly productive property on the famed Jimbour Plain, north of Dalby.
When purchased by the late Kevin Nugent 16 years ago, Wyalong was run as a cattle stud growing forage and grain crops. Since then it has been converted to a highly productive cotton and grain farm with the option to graze cattle along Jimbour Creek and on the road lease.
Located just 4km from the iconic Jimbour House, Wyalong was once part of the very large Jimbour Station. Described by an agronomist as having magnificent, soft volcanic soils, Wyalong is being offered for sale with a 156ha (385 acre) cotton crop included. The crop was planted mid-December has had 145mm of rain in February.
A total of 468ha (1156 acres) is used for cropping with the balance being sweet grazing country.
Improvements include a five bedroom home, machinery shed, workshop, three grain silos, two seed silos and a water bore.
