Auction set to end Allan family's five generation Kyabram farm ownership

The 110 hectare Goulburn Valley farming property, Allans at 766 Palmer Road Kyabram, has been listed for sale.

It is to be auctioned by Rodwells Ruralco Property on September 28 bringing an end to five generations of ownership by members of the Allan family.

John Allan (1866-1936) was the 20th Premier of Victoria serving for two and a half years from March 1924 and as a local activist in the Country Party.

He also played a formative role in the VFU.

Constituents came to the property to raise their issues with the Premier when he was at home.

The property at 766 Palmers Road is seven minutes west of the Kyabram township.

For many decades, it was operated successfully as a family dairy farm.

When the local Murray Goulburn factory closed some time ago the family ceased dairying and in recent years have grazed their own cattle on the holding as well as agisted livestock owned by other local farmers.

The property has access to two Goulburn Murray Water channels.

The property has highly productive pastures with the majority of the holding having been laser levelled for flood irrigation with two recycling dams included in the new paddock layout.

On the property is an older style four bedroom, two bathroom timber homestead.

Pat Allan, the matriarch of the family, says that she has owned the property for the last 64 years.

She says her great grandfather added purchases of any neighbouring blocks that came on to the market.

One of these was a former small block that housed the long closed Wyuna South school where the building was removed and the title consolidated.

Rodwells Ruralco Property Echuca based branch manager Andrew Miller is marketing the property.

“I am anticipating an auction result in the $700,000 range."
