Close knit producers buy Buln Gehrin

Recent stories

Three local Merino sheep and wool producers have acquired western Victoria mixed farming operation Buln Gehrin for more than $35 million combined.

Located two hours from Melbourne and 15 kilometres from Beaufort, the 1,881-hectare holding is suited to wool, prime lamb, cattle and cropping and enjoys views of Mount Cole and Mount Langi Ghiran.

Buln Gehrin – the name means Black Cockatoo – once formed part of grazing property Mawallok. It has been owned by just two families since being settled more than a century ago, including vendors Craig and Judy Carpenter.

The aggregation comprises three contiguous landholdings and was sold as three separate parcels to the farming entities following an expressions of interest campaign managed by Elders’ Sean Simpson and Nick Myer.

Buln Gehrin boasts a productive combination of black/red volcanic and grey loam soils that can carry 28,000 dry sheep equivalent, with scope to increase with further development.

Extensive structural improvements include a state-of-the-art six-stand woolshed complex and undercover yards with a capacity for 4,000 sheep.

Natural water is stored in a 2.6 megalitre rainwater tank, as well as bores and numerous catchment dams.
