Ideal First Dairy Farm

This is a rare opportunity to secure a fantastic smaller dairy unit in the heart of Clydevale. Very well set up farm on rolling contour with excellent soil fertility. The infrastructure here allows for ease of management and options. Includes 30 aside herringbone shed with ACRs and Protrack installed, 300 cow concrete feed pad adjacent to dairy shed and simple effluent system. Currently operated as a self contained 230 cow dairy farm with a high input feed regime (system 5), producing on average 120,000kg MS and also carrying 100 calves through until December. Partially refurbished six bedroom homestead, with open plan kitchen and dining, and separate rumpus room, within well established grounds.
