Errol and Candy Brumpton have offloaded the 1,036 hectare Well Gully property to a local buyer for an undisclosed sum.
The Brumptons eight months ago sold the adjoining 1,554-hectare block, East Lynne, for $2,638 per hectare bare, at a total of $4.1 million.
The high production Well Gully is 24 kilometres from Mitchell and 108 kilometres west of Roma. It was once home to the Well Gully Poll Merino Stud which had a reputation for developing highly profitable wool and meat sheep. It produced the world’s lightest woollen cloth, at 150 grams per lineal metre. The stud breeders sold the 1,806 Merino ewes last year to buyers across the country.
Well Gully is suitable for feeding, fattening, a stud or an operations base for 500 steers or 2,500 breeding ewes.
The country is developed brigalow, belah, bottletree, wilga soils, with about 210 hectares to be cultivated, and the property is watered by high-capacity shallow sub-artesian water, four bores and two earth dams.
Darryl Langton from Nutrien Harcourts was the selling agent.
