TALLOWWOOD FARM - Cattle & Horses
- POMONA QLD
Tallowwood Farm is a cattle and performance horse & spelling farm located in the beautiful Noosa hinterland town of Pomona. The scenic 102 ha or 253 acres, is only 3 mins drive to Pomona with its village atmosphere & only 35 mins drive to the famous tourist town of Noosa Heads. Nestled under the towering Pomona Mountain, Tallowwood Farm has all the facilities & accommodation one would expect for such a quality horse property. The property is ideal for the horse enthusiast wanting to have both horses and cattle.
The horse facilities are outstanding & have to be inspected to be truly appreciated. The dominate structure is the indoor arena complex which is 60m x 20m surfaced with the sought-after Mary River Sand regarded by many as the best sand surface. The building is galvanised steel construction with concrete footings & designed & built by one of Queensland’s premier shed companies. An arena sprinkler system is connected to a 10,000 gallon tank fed from the large dam via a solar pump. There is also a second 10,000 gallon rainwater tank, plus two 5,000 gallon tanks off the stable complex for the auto horse watering system throughout the property. Outdoor arena, 40m x 40m again surfaced with Marry River sand. Both were constructed by well know Todd Cunningham of Equestrian Land Developments.
The stable complex, adjacent to the indoor arena, consists of 4 oversized 5m x 4.5m boxes with rubber cushioned flooring & rubber lined walls complete with automatic waters. Adjoining stable complex is the agistee’s room (4.4m x 8m) complete with shower & toilet. On the other end of the stables is a similar room with full kitchen facilities & washing machine. Connected to the stable complex via an all-weather walkway is the 8m x 7m feed room. At the rear is a double wash bay with hot & cold water.
A large 21m x 9m machinery shed with two 6m lockup bays with high clearance doors & a large central 9m open storage area is ideal for frequently used vehicles. For the cattle truck, horse float or gooseneck, at the rear is a full length 21m x 6m skillion roofed area. The shed complex is connected to its own water supply via 20,000 gallon tank with pressure pump.
The property is well drained, flood free with flat & undulating slopes perfect for cattle or brood mares. There are 29 paddocks with 19 shelters & 3 day yards, all with automatic waterers fed via a pressure pump. 4 of the paddocks are large and ideal for grazing cattle. The paddocks are serviced by a laneway system allowing for easy & safe movement of animals. All paddocks are pasture improved with an excellent mixture of Rhodes grass, Kikuyu, Shaw Creeping Vigna, Blue Grass & Paspalum. The high rainfall for the area means that there is ample quantity and quality pastures for the livestock all year round. Fencing is either timber post with 5 or 8 strands of plain wire with 3 being hot-wired run via solar panels & a top “sighter” wire. All the forest areas have been fenced off while along the railway line there is double fencing with extensive tree planting.
Water storage is excellent, in addition to the large tank system (total 70,000 gals or 320,000 litres) there is also a large spring fed dam (30 mts deep), an excellent source of water for irrigation plus 12 smaller dams throughout the paddocks.
