Please note- Within the greater New England region, according to Elders Real Estate’s Armidale-based Frank Spilsbury, there are three discrete areas noted for their superiority of livestock production. They are the districts of Ben Lomond and Ebor, and the country south-east of Walcha. All three are characterised by quality soils, high rainfall and consequent high-quality pasture performance. Average rainfall ranges from 900mm to 950mm, and with an elevation of over 1300m above sea level the area is green year-round and receives occasional snow in winter.
