Description

Prime bull finishing unit - Bay of Islands


This 3rd generation family farm is superbly set up for finishing bulls with excellent gross returns per/ha. Property has some 219 paddocks with central race system plus long road frontages all making for ease of management and opportunity for intensive farming. The home block consists of 284ha of clean hill country with the jewel in the crown being 116ha of very productive flats, recognised as top summer finishing country.

Current farming policy is to purchase some 300 yearling bulls and take them through two winters plus purchasing store bulls as and when required. All stock are finished. Summer stocking rates have been around 1300 head with 750 plus wintered. Property ideally suited for any form of cattle production and/or dairy support.

The farm is complemented by two good homes, very good stock handling facilities and an array of farm sheds. The farm has an excellent and reliable water supply plus a first rate fertiliser history.

Also on offer is some 24ha of mature pruned pines, some ready for harvest now, or let them grow into more profit.

The saying location, location, location certainly applies to this property. Situated on the Kawakawa township boundary and just a short drive to Paihia and everything the Bay of Islands has to offer. The vintage steam railway plus the twin coast cycle trail runs through the property. With the combination of location, some 24 titles and numerous road frontages there is plenty of scope for future lifestyle development.

Returns for drystock farming have never been better. Our vendors have purchased their retirement home in Paihia.

One of the best farming opportunities available in the north. Call for details now.
