Subdivided into approximately 12 worked paddocks and four hill blocks with potential to increase production with further development, 25 hectares of Lucerne meets the property's wintering requirements of 70-80 bales and 20 hectares of swedes or kale are sown annually for wintering the hinds.

A combination of gravity fed troughs and natural creeks, solar powered electric fence unit, an annual application of 250 kilograms Sulphur Super on the paddocks. A very weed-free property.

A set of sheep yards with a modest crutching shed containing three shearing plants, combination deer and cattle yards, and Sutherlands Hut, make up the farm buildings. There are two satellite tailing yards on the hill blocks. Hunting is an added bonus with wild deer, Chamois, and Tahr. With Sutherlands Hut being on the Moa Tours High Country circuit there is an existing income from tourism. The 155 year old historic Sutherlands Hut could be used for many other tourism options.

Mowbray is a low cost, freehold, high country station with hunting, tourism and multiple livestock income, and potential to further develop and increase production.
