Outstanding Infrastructure and Prime Location

This is an attractive turn-key dairy unit with excellent infrastructure overall, on predominately Waikiwi soils which are renowned for their productive grass growth. The farm was converted in 2008 to a high standard with automated 54 bail rotary cowshed. Five bedroom executive homestead, two other houses, new herd home for 250 cows built in 2018, and full array of supporting sheds. The cowshed can be run as a one-person shed which makes for ease of management. In addition there is approx. 18 hectares of milking platform lease that should be able to be transferred to purchaser at settlement. The purchaser also makes available for sale the shareholding in Mataura Valley Milk which is over and above the asking price of $6,780,000. If your buying criteria has good infrastructure, productive soils, and location, then this property is a must view. Country & Co Realty is privileged to offer this dairy unit to the market.
