Natural, low-input cattle breeding country doesn't come much better than in the North West Slopes region, where expressions of interest will close next week for a substantial grazing aggregation.

John and Rae Boland have set their sights on a cattle block in North Queensland and have listed their Noonameena Aggregation for sale with Moree Real Estate.

Situated 48 kilometres south-east of Bingara and 50km north of Barraba, the aggregation of 3914 hectares (9667ac) is made up of Noonameena (2284ha), Winston (951ha) and Corner Camp (679ha).

Although the aggregation is being offered as a whole, offers for individual components will also be considered.

Described as undulating, rolling hill country of red and brown soil types, the property has some steeper sections towards the eastern end.

It is all accessible and readily managed.

About 300ha of the property is heavily timbered, leaving a balance of mostly open grazing country of which 150ha has been cultivated.

In normal seasons (pictured) the property has an owner-estimated carrying capacity of 1100-1200 cows and calves.

Even in the current drought it is running 850 cows, with no hand-feeding.

Average rainfall is around 700-750mm and the property is well watered by five equipped bores, dams and several permanent and semi-permanent creeks.

Fencing is described as very good, with a central laneway linking many of the property's 24 paddocks.

A continual program is in place of fencing renewal including 25km in the past 10 years.

The aggregation comes with three homesteads, all having three bedrooms and verandahs, as well as a workers' quarters with amenities and kitchen.

Working improvements include two Ranbuild machinery sheds, each with five bays and lockable sections.

There are also three sets of steel cattle yards including a main set to handle 500 head.

Expressions of interest for Noonameena Aggregation will close with the selling agents on July 18.
