Turn Key Dairy Unit

If location is a key factor for you when buying, then this dairy unit will fit the bill being only 12 minutes north of Invercargill, just off state highway 98 in the Roslyn Bush district. The property comprises 151 hectares, with a brand new consent for 400 cows expiring May 2030, which provides excellent security in the current environment. The farm produced 162,000 kg MS in the 2019/20 season from 375 Kiwi X cows, under a system three operation. This farm has been improving year on year, with production 8% ahead year to date.
Farm infrastructure is another highlight of this property with a modern, ten year old, 36 aside herringbone cow shed, fitted with ACRs, in-shed feeding and a 500 cow yard. This property has ample other support buildings, including two quality calf sheds and two calving pads. There are two good homes on the property, with the main home renovated and overlooking a large portion of the farm towards the north. Other notable features on this unit is the flat to gentle contour, simple central race system that accesses the platform, with the longest walk being only 700 metres. Furthermore there is 9.4 hectares of 25 year old Pinus Radiata ready for harvest. Our vendor have invested in riparian planting adjacent to most of the water ways, a turn key farm that comes highly recommended.
