Large scale farming - 958.6ha


A massive 958.6 hectare self contained dairy farm that straddles the Kaipara and Whangarei districts, suitable as a large scale dairy platform, currently split calving and milking approximately 950 cows with combination of dairy, cropping and beef.

Converted in 2010 this large scale property features a mixture of contours and soil types with a variety of farming opportunities. Production achieved in the 2016 season was 306,469kgMS and 340,220kgMS in 2015 from 1200 cows off over 600ha milking platform.

Improvements include a 54 bale rotary cowshed with automatic cup removers and the shed is set up with electronically controlled " in bales" feeding, enabling balanced nutrient supply based on the cows stage of lactation and milk yield and is complimented by a newly erected concrete feed pad.

The overall property is fenced with a maintained internal 1.6 kilometre long tanker entrance road with majority of races accessed by a network of wide limestone races. Water is sourced from the Manganui River, pumped to header tanks and gravity fed to troughs. Each paddock in the milking platform is supplied with abundant top quality water. This system is seen as providing efficiencies in use of stock and land utilizing the more remote parts of the farm for carrying replacement stock, dry cows, cropping and beef. Currently split calving, milking 950 cows on a milking platform over 600ha effective, with a projected forecast of an excess of 270,000kgMS with the view of rearing more beef stock by better utilizing all surrounding area on farm and has the added benefit of a sharemilker in place.

Properties of this scale and quality of improvements are hard to find and no doubt offer future growth and beneficial to the farm. The vendor is fully motivated to sell, so view this property today.
