Under the new ownership and board and management structure the sky is the limit at the quality Kimberley Cattle Station Liveringa. By working closely with senior management, under the board’s direction, the Liveringa team believe in a shared vision to capitalize and add to the property’s existing assets and improvements, bringing it and the people through to the forefront of the industry. This will take a lot of hard work and of course investment of capital, but with the focus on safety, animal welfare, technology and the direction and focus on reducing fuel and energy costs, we at Liveringa are pleased to be part of the team leading the way in the Pastoral Industry.
At over 365,000 hectare, Liveringa is segregated into around 40 paddocks, with numerous watering points and 25,000 head of cattle. We have a farming enterprise growing good quality irrigated hay & silage and a comprehensive workshop, all adding value to the extensive grazing operation through improving turnoff weights and quality of our product. Improvement and upgrades are being constantly made to fencing, yards, bores, dams and roads with a strong focus on solar technology wherever possible. The cattle are high quality Brangus Cross and Hancock Agriculture buys good quality polled bulls every year and it is a constant job to manage these in a manner appropriate to the investment. Liveringa is also introducing Wagyu genetics to the herd. The genetic makeup of the herd is structured in a way where we can easily target multiple specific markets such as Live Export & Domestic, depending on demand & dollars per kg offered.
