“Highland Plains” is an historic, favourably located, quality grazing property held by the Pocock Family for the past 35 years, during which time their focus of production has been on cattle breeding and fattening. Some of the larger areas of deep, black self-mulching soils have in the past been successfully farmed and could easily be bought back into production for forage crop or grain production if desired. The level of improvements introduced over recent years has been focused towards ease of management, offering more appeal to existing producers looking to expand, as well as easily run as a standalone operation.
