Smaller Dairy Unit Handy to Invercargill

Lovely, smaller dairy unit situated in the popular Woodlands district. The farm comprises flat to gentle contour, majority on Waikiwi soils, two road frontages, well-situated, good internal races to most paddocks and full water and effluent reticulation.

The 35 aside herringbone cowshed was rebuilt in 2007 and features a new circular yard and, the old cowshed is now used for A.I and drafting. Implement shed, hayshed and storage shed. The homestead is an older weatherboard home which requires work.

This is an ideal smaller unit that really can perform.
