Consistent Performer with Redpath Barns


If you are looking for a reliable and well located dairy unit, then this property should be of high interest. Located just off the main highway between Gore & Mataura this dairy farm consistently produces year in year out. It also winters all calving cows on farm in the Redpath barns.

Other highlights on this property are the fertile silt loam soils, established shelter, large concrete silage pad and a low cost and reliable 32 ASHB cowshed with Hecton in shed feed system.

The current vendors have a long term lease close to the dairy unit and would work in with the new purchaser to supply supplements to the barns for wintering the cows, and silage through the milking season if required.
