Terrace Pastoral

Is now the time to invest in the dairy industry, or upscale your current farm? With the milk pay out looking to finish on a high this season and strong forecasts looking forward, the returns have never looked so good.

Presenting to the market is a mid-scale dairy unit, well located being just minutes from Mataura township. The low maintenance 44 aside herringbone shed has ACRs, Protrack and in-shed feed system, for easy management throughout the year. A new underpass and 3000sqm concrete feed pad that is consented for 680 cows were completed last year, helping future proof environmental issues. The effluent system was rehauled in 2016, with the addition of a cliptank and lining of the current pond.

Our vendors also have an additional 408ha dairy unit for sale within ten minutes, they are motivated to see these properties sold, with takeover available June 2020 or 2021.
