Carlton Hill and Ivanhoe play an integral part in CPCs significant live export market, growing 15,000 - 20,000 steers and heifers a year in readiness for shipping, ex-Wyndham, to Asia and the Middle East.
With a 900 mm annual rainfall, Carlton Hill and Ivanhoe can comfortably support 49,100 head including 20,000 Brahman breeders. Couch and buffel grasses on the aggregation's alluvial flats and black soil plains also provide an excellent plane of nutrition for growing steers.
Carlton Hill and Ivanhoe joined the Consolidated Pastoral Company stable in 1992.
Spirit Hill is a property owned by the NT Government adjoining Ivanhoe. It was also formerly owned by the Durack family. This property is leased by CPC and run in conjunction with Carlton Hill and Ivanhoe.
