GINA Rinehart’s Hancock Agriculture has recently purchased three irrigated cropping properties in the Wee Waa region of New South Wales, in a transaction reportedly worth circa $150 million.
 

Industry sources have told Grain Central that Hancock Ag purchased the 6856-hectare aggregation from the Findley family, who have lived in the area for three generations.

The transaction features main property, Cudgewa, alongside Pian Plain and Pindara, which are run by father-and-son team Robin and Lucas Findley.

Sizable, reliable water entitlements is understood to be a key feature of the aggregation, with the properties coming with a combined allocation of 23,000 megalitres plus approximately 7000ML of groundwater.

Of the total land size, about 4300ha is developed to irrigation.
