25 dams, three small creeks on springs.
Three bedroom homestead set on a slope commanding stunning views to the east and north. The home has polished timber flooring; two, separate, living areas and a modern kitchen.
Three bedroom hardi-plank cottage in good order. There is also an old homestead site set away from the main accomodation that has power leading to it, with a transformer.
Fencing on “Rampsbeck” is all in good to excellent order. Boundaries are secured mostly by netting, while internal fences include some new 7-wire fences, netting and some hingejoint.
Yards & Sheds
One main set of dual-species yards, situated centrally, with easy access for trucks. There is a second set of sheep yards at the woolshed. The woolshed is a steel and wood three stand building.
Theres is also a 70 X 30 ft steel machinery shed and a butcher’s room.
“Rampsbeck” currently carries merino ewes with crossbred lambs at foot, large frame Santa Gertrudis cows with calves at foot and their followers including 18 – 24 month old steers.
A fair estimate of cattle carrying capacity would be around 550 cows and calves, turning the calves off as weaners.
The property lends itself to further pasture improvement which may increase this rate.
“Rampsbeck” presents as a productive property with sound infrastructure. Whilst the balance of scattered timber and pastures is healthy, the property could possibly benefit from further pasture work.
