Delamare Dairy

Action is required on this large scale dairy unit, located in the strong farming district of Brydone. The 50 bail rotary shed has ACRs, in-shed feeding, and centrally located on the property. Furthermore there is a 900 cow concrete feed pad that is connected to original effluent system which gives flexibility in farm systems and climatic turns.
There is four housing options on the property, which are all in good overall condition. The farm would be considered to have ample buildings which includes various calf rearing facilities, fertiliser bin, haysheds, implement sheds and much more.
The farm is well managed, with pastures being clean and in good heart. Historically has wintered all dairy cows on farm, there is opportunity and ability to lift numbers and increase production if a change of farm policy with wintering cows off. If a well presented, larger scale dairy unit at a good entry price is something that might appeal to you, this could just be the one.
