Dairy Unit With Location and Infrastructure


Vendors have owned this Brydone property since 1997. The subject farm being sold is currently part of a larger 145 ha unit. Excellent square shape with access off both Terrace Road and Pakura Road. The farm milked 360 cows and achieved 97,000 kg MS for 2019/20 season based off the vendors overall 145 ha unit. With the wet weather through the 2019 spring, decision was made to go on OAD. Depending on purchasers proposed management focus, there is the ability to increase production significantly. Excellent infrastructure overall with a 40 bail rotary cowshed that was built in 2016 a feature of the farm. Not often do you find smaller properties with rotary cowsheds. Good Homestead on the farm having a new kitchen installed. Cows are available at valuation. Settlement date is negotiable. This is a farm that offers excellent location, shape,and facilities. Depending on farming system run, there is genuine milk production upside.
