Sapphire Feedlot

The Sapphire property is located 32km east of the Goondiwindi township. It has an ideal location with regards to feeder cattle, commodities and market access. In addition, it has very fertile and productive soils underpinning 100% of the property’s cattle feedlot forage requirement and 30% of its grain demand.

It covers 1716ha of country that consists of about 415ha for irrigation cultivation, 1,000 ha dryland cultivation and 301 ha for grazing and water infrastructure. The property enjoys river frontage to the Dumaresq River, which serves the irrigation development as well as providing ample supply for feedlot stock water.

The 6000 head Sapphire Feedlot has capacity to grow to 8700 head with the development to be rolled out in future. Sapphire will be run using the industry leading standards and systems that have helped create and underpin the success at Smithfield Feedlot. The management team will be working hard to implement these systems that will have Sapphire producing a high quality product and supplying some of Australia’s largest beef suppliers.
