Wyndham Robot Unit


Situated on the boundary of the Wyndham Township, is this ideal opportunity to purchase a modern one person operation with full automation and further production upside.

Converted in 2010 to a very high standard, this modern 65ha robotic partially self-contained dairy unit is currently milking 145 cows and has produced up to 59,500kg MS. The vendors are also grazing R1 and R2 replacement heifers throughout the main growing season but wintering off farm.

There are two Lely robots in the modern dairy shed, supported by substantial farm infrastructure providing the ability to rear large numbers of calves. There is a large, well-appointed homestead set in an established and sheltered surrounds. Key attributes about this unique operation include the short walking distance to the dairy shed, the flat fertile soils, the ability for one person to operate and the close proximity to both Invercargill and Gore, with Fonterra Edendale being only five minutes drive.

This is the ideal opportunity to enter dairy land ownership with further production upside on offer. The farm can be purchased as a going concern with the predominantly Friesian herd and replacement stock, plant and machinery in place. priced to sell, our vendors want action. Inspection recommended.
