Bidders competed at auction on Wednesday afternoon for a single large paddock in the Black Springs district of SA's Mid North which eventually sold for $1,150,000.
The Whites block at Manoora takes in 149 hectares (369 acres) and was offered at the Clare Sports Club by Ray White Rural SA.
There were five registered bidders for the auction which resulted in a price of $3117 per acre for the vendors.
Whites is said to be an easily managed cropping/grazing farm block.
The land has been fenced into one large paddock and is located 10km north of Manoora, just west of the Barrier Highway and about 35km to the east of Clare.
Agents suggest the property may appeal to existing farm businesses looking for farm expansion in quality farming land or as 'stand alone' long term investment.
The block has three seasonal dams for stock water.
"The area is tightly held and well regarded, providing flexible enterprise options including growing cereals, oil seeds, legumes, hay production and running livestock," agents said.
Annual average rainfall in the Manoora district is said to be around 470mm.
Meanwhile, a large grazing property at Truro, about 90km north-east of Adelaide, will be one of the final public auctions for the year.
The Truro district farm Kangussie which takes in 620 hectares (1533 acres) is heading for auction at the Truro Oval at 2pm on Friday, December 15.
Agents from Ray White Rural say Kangussie presents an outstanding opportunity to acquire a well managed grazing property with convenient access to livestock markets and lower north cropping regions.
Kangussie is located 17km south-east of Truro and is said to have "some useful" arable land which has been planted for stock feed.
But at its heart the Truro farm is ideal grazing country with healthy native clovers and grasses, saltbush, spear grass and bindii.
It is watered by solar bore and SA mains water.
Agents said Kangussie would be an ideal acquisition to complement a cropping enterprise to increase sheep numbers.
It may also suit an established grazier as a spelling block or as an easily managed "stand alone" entry level farming block.
