The quality mixed farming enterprise features an extensive mix of improved and native pastures along with established cultivation areas for oats and forage production.

Marketing agent Clayton Smith, JLL Agribusiness, said since being acquired by the Waugh Family in 2012, Doogalook had been progressively developed as a highly productive and versatile property, underpinned by excellent operational infrastructure.

Doogalook covers 3327 hectares (8221 acres) and is located 10km south of Meandarra.

"The combination of secure stock water, highly productive land and soil types exhibiting large stands of pasture, secure fencing and two sets of stock yards strategically located with central laneways for ease of livestock handling, make this property a pleasure to inspect," Mr Smith said.

"Doogalook is EU accredited and consistently breeds and fattens quality bullocks on farm with turn off dressing circa 400kg at 24 to 30 months of age."

Water is a feature of the Meandarra property Doogalook.

The property has excellent infrastructure including two solar powered stock watering systems servicing a series of storage tanks and troughs.

These reticulated systems are complemented by a permanent waterhole in Brigalow Creek, a large centrally located dam, and seven other dams. Holme and Brigalow creeks combine to provide a very good level of water security.
