Staff reporterOctober 7, 20180 min read

One of Australia’s largest integrated beef and cropping businesses, spanning nearly 26,000ha is being offered to the market for sale.

CBRE Agribusiness has been appointed to sell the northern NSW aggregation, comprising a large scale integrated business producing more than 100,000 MSA graded cattle and 40,000 tonnes of grain on a yearly cycle.

Located in NSW’s north-west, the business recently received certification and trade mark for its unique cattle finishing model, ‘Certified Free Range Grain & Grass Fed’, which has underpinned its award-winning beef brands.

CBRE’s Richard Royle and Col Medway are seeking a buyer via an expressions of interest campaign closing October 31.

Mr Royle said the opportunity to secure a successful enterprise with both scale and diversity had already generated significant investment interest.

“To date, inspections have been conducted by a wide variety of buyers, including Australian and international corporates, Australian family offices, private capital advisors, private equity managers, cropping businesses and beef industry participants,” Mr Royle said.

The aggregation has a current cattle capacity of 30,000 head of cattle, with an annual turnoff capacity in excess of 140,000 and further expansion capabilities. The cattle are accommodated in the licensed 7,000 SCU feedlot

(DA approval for an expansion to 20,000 SCU) with the remainder in paddocks under the grain and grass fed system.

The dry land cropping ranges from flat Moree plains to rolling hillside at Croppa Creek/Warialda. The business also operates its own fleet of modern livestock and bulk trucks, ensuring the prompt delivery of cattle to processors and customers.

Structural improvements and infrastructure include quality plant and machinery, grain storage facilities, reticulated water troughs, fencing, cattle yards, storage facilities and accommodation. It also includes a long-standing management team and support team of mechanics and maintenance staff.
