Hayfield is a mixture of country with approximately 40,000 acres of undulating country that is mostly timbered with Gidgee, Mulga and Eucalypt trees along with many different species of scrubs. There are areas of Bendee and Lancewood timber along the stoney range country that forms an escarpment. This country has mostly Spinifex, and native grasses as well as salines, forbs and herbages that are growing at present. It is light carrying browse country that is very useful to run dry cattle on.

There is approximately 2,000 acres of open downs country that is well grassed with Flinders and Mitchell grass and other native summer grasses along with summer herbages. The balance of the country is best described as red Mulga country that is interspersed with Gidgee flats and the Stewart, Sheepyard and other minor creek systems. This country is lightly grassed with mostly sweet native summer grasses and herbages. There is a good establishment of Buffel grass along the many creek systems on Hayfield. There is a mixture of timbers throughout this country that include Mulga, Beefwood, Bauhinia, Vinetree, Desert Oaks, Bloodwood, Leopardwood, False Sandalwood and many different Eucalypt varieties.


There are 11 dams and three operational bores on Hayfield. Water is pumped by a solar pump from the house dam to a tank and trough in Gibber paddock and to the Hayfield bore watering facility into a tank and two troughs. Water is also pumped from the same dam to the house and to other water points around the holding paddocks.

The Stewarts Creek bore was drilled in 2001 to a depth of 142 meters. Water is pumped from this bore into a poly tank and two troughs by a solar pump.

The New Gibber bore was drilled in 1995 to a depth of 60 metres and can be pumped at 1.89 litres per second or approximately 1400 gallons per hour. This bore is not equipped at present.

The Bottom End bore was drilled in 2001 to a depth of 121 metres and is equipped with a solar pump. The water is pumped into a poly tank and trough and is then gravity fed through poly pipe for approximately 4 km to another trough in Bottom End Tryeta paddock.

There are many seasonal small water holes along the creek systems that will hold water for 3 to 4 months following a run in the creeks.

Fencing & Paddocks:

Hayfield is fenced into 7 main paddocks and 3 holding paddocks. The internal fencing is a mix of 5 plain and 1 barb or 4 barbs and is mostly in good stock proof condition. The boundary fence is mostly 4 barb or 5 plain and 1 barb apart from a section of old dog netting fence. The majority of the boundary is in good to very good condition. The vendors are continually replacing the older sections of the fencing with new 3 or 4 barb fences.


There is a set of timber and steel cattle yards along with some portable panels that will comfortably work 500 head of cattle at the homestead. The vendors are currently renewing a large section of these yards with steel post and steel rails and cable. There is a pound draft, steel vet crush and calf branding facilities. Water is connected to the yards.

Carrying Capacity:

Hayfield would have a carrying capacity of 600 breeders or equivalent in an average season.


There is a comfortable 3 bedroom home with ducted air-conditioning, office, lounge, kitchen with dishwasher, bathroom and toilet that is connected to a second house via a covered in breezeway. The second house is fully self-contained with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, bathroom and toilet. There is solar hot water system.

The old woolshed is now mainly used as storage shed.

Agents Remarks:

“Hayfield” is an easy care property that would be considered a safe breeder block because of the Spinifex, tree and scrub browse. It is a good mix of country and has large areas that would benefit greatly from storm runoff. The present feed is a very good quality mix of summer grasses and summer herbages that include pig weed and gidgee burr. I would consider Hayfield a safe breeder block for cattle requiring immediate feed as the waters are safe and the feed quality good. Two of the 4 blocks have been freehold and another is in progress.
