This well presented dairy farm is an opportunity to purchase an investment with scale and quality infrastructure. Located in Mokoreta, 30km from Fonterra's Edendale plant and 70km from Invercargill. The 455 hectare property has a reliable grass growing climate for consistent production.
With an estimated milking platform of 362 hectares, peak milking 820 cows and a four year average of approximately 383,000 kg milk solids, this farm has everything needed to walk in and start farming. There is an option to purchase stock and plant at an agreed valuation. The property has approximately 22 hectares of rougher grazing, 44 hectares of native bush and approximately 11 hectares of pine trees.
The management has been using a predominately grass based system with a focus on establishing a sustainable business that can prosper even in times of lower milk prices. Supplements have been fed via in-shed feeding to fill any deficits.
The farm dairy is a high spec'd 64 bale rotary with a Milfos plant, ACR's, Protrack and flood wash yard. There is a well set up effluent system with storage for 65 days and waterways are well fenced for environmental protection. Calf rearing facilities offer a purpose built 13 bay shed with 12 pens. Other improvements include a five bay implement shed with a workshop and an abundant list of storage, hay and calf sheds.
Housing consists of a tidy four bedroom main homestead with modern kitchen, a three bedroom family home, an older four bedroom homestead and a three bedroom smaller home. All homes have sufficient heating and garaging.
This property is managed to a high standard and is currently showing great returns on investment with potential production upside available in the future.
