The Clayton has been in the Oldfield family since 1955. With over 2000 sq Km’s we run predominately beef cattle with Poll Hereford being the main breed with Charolaises and Angus put over the Hereford cows. We sell off our weaners every year regardless of the season to the feedlot and domestic markets, concentrating on holding our cows in the best possible condition.
The property is managed every year for a possible drought and if we get a rain then that is a bonus. Spelling permanent watering points as much as possible during the good years give us a good feed base to come back to in the dry ones.
We also have been selling horses all over Australia since the early 1990’s, these being mainly the Waler type. These very versatile horses are used for everything from general hacking to endurance, showing and polocrosse.
Clayton Station is now offering Luxury Self contained accommodation with 2 x 2 bedroom Units. At night you can sit on the deck or in the hot tub overlooking the Clayton Creek watching the spectacular sunset.
If you are just wanting to camp we have our bush camping site just off the Birdsville Track along the Clayton Creek with flushing toilet, bush shower and our hot tub. Sorry no power at the camping grounds.
We have just put in our airstrip which is located 300 metre north of the homestead.
