Droughtmaster cattle farm, Haranel at Mount Mee, sold

Haranel, a fully operating cattle farm on Mount Mee on Queensland's Sunshine Coast hinterland, has been sold for $1.95 million.

Ray White Rural, which suggested Haranel was ideal for either cattle grazing or fattening secured the price at auction last Friday.

The purchaser was described as a professional gentleman based in Brisbane.

The retiring owners are relocating for family reasons.

Jez McNamara and Barry Quinn from Ray White Rural Brisbane and Vicki Pain from Ray White Rural Dayboro marketed and sold the property which attracted over 100 enquiries during the four week campaign.

It spans 67 hectares of lush pastures able to accomodate more than 80 breeders plus calves year-round.

Mount Mee is 1600 metres above sea level, with its climate of cool clean air and high rainfall suitable for cattle farming.

The locality was almost all dairy country decades ago, but now only a few remain as the cattle industry has taken over.

Ray White Rural agents Barry Quinn and Jez McNamara who suggested Haranel is ideal for either cattle grazing or fattening secured the price at auction last Friday.

Currently the property runs the Droughtmaster breed, a breed conceived in response to the need in the Australian Tropics for tick resistance.

The breed use the environment and the pastures in the most efficient manner to give higher weight gains and fertility.

Its not a well know breed as Droughtmasters make up just five percent of registered cattle across the country.

Late last year Haranel sold its six month old Droughtmaster calves for $725 at Woodford sales.

There's steel cattle yards and a spring fed permanent creek that runs through the property which takes its name from Hebrew for Mountain of God.

A six bay shed incorporates a two storey, two bedroom, fully self-contained mangers quarters.

Quinn and McNamara have set a July 6 auction date.

The country property comes with a 2013 built homestead on a level plateau at the top of the estate, capturing views across the surrounding mountains, farmland, creeks and valleys.

Quinn says it's arguably the best home in Mount Mee. 

The single level Queenslander with a wrap around verandah has two separate bedroom wings. There are six bedrooms, each with their own ensuite.

The large open plan living area with striking wood burning fireplace opens to terrace which features a swimming pool and spa.

Haranel last traded for $630,000 in 2012 before the house was built.
