QUEENSLAND, 22 July 2020 – Western Queensland pastoral operation, Baratria is being offered to market as a turnkey investment and an opportunity to acquire a large-scale pastoral enterprise in the renowned Winton region.

Located between Longreach and Winton, the 77,747 hectare property is the amalgam of three distinct pastoral landholdings – Baratria, Hartree and Clyde.

JLL’s Directors – Agribusiness Geoff Warriner and Chris Holgar in conjunction with Walter Cooper of RPL have been appointed to sell the aggregation via an Expressions-of-Interest (EOI) campaign, closing on Thursday 17 September, 2020.

Mr Warriner said, “Due to the scale, location, level of development and favourable pasture and soil types, we anticipate Baratria to generate significant interest from existing industry participants seeking expansion of an existing supply chain or investors seeking a high-quality, viable standalone enterprise.

“Since being acquired by the Teys family, Baratria has earned an enviable reputation for the consistent production of EU accredited cattle to domestic markets.

“Having undergone practical development and conservatively stocked over the past 18 years, Baratria is a turnkey opportunity with quality infrastructure, an abundance of water and available pasture,” said Mr Warriner.

Mr Holgar said, “Baratria represents an excellent opportunity to all participants in the North Australian beef sector. It is located approximately 50 kilometres east of Winton and is bisected by the Landsborough Highway, a major thoroughfare for northern beef producers to access eastern markets. 

”The aggregation is estimated to have a sustainable carrying capacity of 9,000 head.

“The diversity and flexibility of Baratria lends itself to be a large scale breeding enterprise for  producers with fattening properties further to the east or alternatively, a large scale backgrounding enterprise for the larger producers to the north and west,” said Mr Holgar.

JLL’s Agribusiness have recently transacted a number of agricultural assets in Queensland, including Leeora Downs for circa $16 million and in conjunction with RPL, Bowen Downs for circa $19.5 million, Terrick for circa $40 million and Retreat Station for $20 million.
