    Coronet Hill - History

    - Coronet Hill was a purely cattle enterprise until 2014. At that time, a rotational grazing system had been used on approximately 1054 ha. This involved mobs of cattle being rotated between about 12 equally sized cells of 10 ha (yearlings) or 20 ha (cows and calves). Cattle were rotated about every three days depending on pasture growth. Yearling mobs comprised about 300 cattle and cow calf mobs were about 150-200 cows. This system provided beef production of up to 400kg/ha (LW) for yearlings and 250kg/ha (LW) for cow/calf units.
    - The rotational grazing system allowed Coronet Hill to be stocked with about 750-800 breeding cows (plus their calves) and about 2000 yearlings. Yearlings were purchased in autumn/early winter and sold in December/January. Peak winter stocking rates were up to 26dse/ha and averaged year-round up to 18dse/ha. Previously up to 1000 breeders plus replacements and bulls have been carried.
    - Fertiliser rates were 200kg/ha of super phosphate, 30kg/ha potash, and up to two applications of 70 kg/ha of urea for the rotational grazing system. Pasture has at times been over sown with cereal for early season feed growth. Pastures consist of clover/serradella/balansa/ryegrass/kikuyu mix.
    - Since 2014, a cropping rotation between pasture and wheat was established on Coronet Hill. Most internal fences on the rotational grazing systems have been removed returning to the original configuration for ease of cropping. The cell fencing system could be readily reinstated.
    - Water shortage has never been a problem on Coronet Hill. There are three bores tapping into a perched aquifer with a water table at a depth of 3m located beside the driveway. Submersible pumps powered by 240V mains power pump water to 2 x 130kl tanks on the hill behind the house where it is gravity fed to the whole property. Back up bores have been installed at three other sites on the property, two of them in different aquifers. These back up bores are not equipped. Additional emergency water has been pumped from waterfilled claypits located close to the water lines. Water quality is excellent and ranges from 50-100 mS.
    - Fencing is a mixture of conventional fencing and electric fencing. A central 240V electric fence unit is located in the shed and 3 large solar powered units are located in more distant paddocks. The rotational grazing cell fencing was based upon electric fencing.
    - Most of the farm has been limed with 1.5t of lime per ha and much of the cropping area has been limed twice in the last ten years.
    -A system of shallow drains has been installed on the heavy country to remove excess winter water. Most drainage is internal with the excess fresh water going into the large freshwater lake-swamp system on the south of the property.
