Well Situated Dairy Farm


Located in the reliable dairying area of Tokomairo Plains, 2km to Milton and 55km to Dunedin. This 193.89ha dairy unit has a centrally located 40 aside herringbone cowshed, fully equipped with a Hecton meal feeding system. The upgraded cow yard caters for up to 500 cows and is complemented by by an excellent four bay calf shed situated at the dairy shed.

The farm is well subdivided and raced with internal access to paddocks, also a 150 cow capacity stand off pad and attractive shelter across the property. Fencing comprises a mix of permanent on the perimeter and three wire electric internally. Fertile Taieri and Warepa soils provide a base that respond to their recommended fertiliser applications. Effluent disposal requirements from the conventional pond system are met by irrigating 25ha via travelling irrigator.

Split block, four bedroom homestead, positioned with commanding views over the farm and a second, five bedroom home is situated near the main infrastructure.

The farm has been a consistent producer with further potential production growth.
