Specialised Heifer Grazing and Fattening Block

Located handy to Invercargill, this well set up property has much to offer. The extensive and mature shelter throughout the farm provides a picturesque outlook and the central lane makes access to paddocks very simple. The block is supported by a vast array of sheds and farm buildings as well as a duck pond and gravel pit.
The large covered yards have been opened up and boasts an attached concrete feedpad area that would be ideal for calf rearing. All water for the farm is supplied via a bore with ample storage of six concrete water tanks. All water is treated through the UV filtration system at the dairy shed.
The farm is currently leased out with the lease due to expire 31 May 2019, and has been carrying 120 R2s and 120 calves and utililised for grass silage.
Initially the farm was converted to dairying in 1990 with the dairy shed subsequently decommissioned in 2008.
The three bedroom home is surrounded by a mature garden setting.
