Picturesque, irrigated dairy unit

Now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity to purchase a substantial irrigated dairy farm in a central location with a wide range of options for farming systems.

On offer is a 153 hectare dairy unit, 17km from the ever-expanding rural village of Paparoa. This property, which will suit a number of varied farming uses, includes a large irrigation lake. Production this season is on target for 58,000kgMS on OAD with a winter contract in place from the estimated 100 hectare milking platform.

Take advantage of the irrigation sprinklers that cover 50 hectares and the effluent which is spread and adds to the fertility. All irrigation, infrastructure and dairy improvements are modern, efficient and well thought out, including a 30 ASHB cowshed.

Contour consists of a mixture of easy rolling with some steeper areas. The property is subdivided into 54 paddocks which are well-serviced by a limestone race system. The fencing is of a high standard supported by two and three wire electric. A substantial array of shedding includes a two-bay calf shed, a three-bay implement shed, two half round barns and disused cowshed utilised for calf rearing and storage areas.

Dwellings include a solid five bedroom Lockwood home and an older Kauri three

bedroom home with extensive decks opening the house to the sun. This entire property has recently undergone significant improvement. Astute buyers will appreciate the opportunity to continue with the economic cost of production, or perhaps explore opportunities to lift production and income. Whether this be farming or possibilities of tourism by utilising the lake, either way, this property is worthy of investigation.
