Founded in 2009, SLM Partners was established to channel investment capital towards land management systems that are profitable and sustainable. Our first project focuses on beef cattle production on grazing land in Australia.
The fund acquired 2 properties covering 44,000 hectares near Cunnamulla, Queensland at the end of 2012. Since acquisition, 98km of water pipes and 23 new water points have been installed, to provide reliable drinking water for cattle throughout the property. 580km of single-wire electric fences have been erected, creating more than 200 paddocks. Two new cattle yards have been built. A herd of approximately 4,000 cattle has been run since the middle of 2013, despite rainfall well below the historical average.
