What to do?
Hello my name is Andrew,
My family has owned a parcel of land in the wollongong region for 150 years.
The property is now roughly 100 acres (50 of thick scrub and 50 of heavily weeded wirey Kikuyu.
Recently we have started to spray the weeds on our property hoping to get it cleared of weeds and mowed so we can begin to start farming again.
We don't have the time or patience to clear the scrub so we are left with around 50 acres to farm. I am stuck with what would be semi-profitable and able to run in this area. We have an average rainfall of 1300mm and 2 dams and a creek running through the property as well as cattle yards and a large fenced horse paddock along with 3 small ones. We also have a tractor with a slasher, mulcher, grader blade and a harrow. Also plenty of fencing equipment.
Any help with what would be a good option for our farm would be greatly appreciated.
