In the more recent years, we purchased the neighbouring farm which comprises of 3000 acres of tough hill country. The Block was well fenced and tracked but we have continued to improve the block with more fencing and development.
The hill block is the perfect block for testing our genetics, in particular for the venison industry. The majority of our clients have similar type country so we can test and run the same animals we are selling to them up on this block.
We fawn around 1400 hinds on the block with a fawning percentage of 98% and run over 500 stags up there during the rut. All deer are mustered off with helicopters and run back down to the flats.
