Located on the fertile flats of Otaua & Aka aka is this productive 48 hectare (more or less) dairy farm milking 160 Friesian cross cows is on target to produce 65,000kgMS this season.

The well positioned 16 ASHB cowshed has the added convenience of a Dosatron inline dispenser and a liquid feed (molasses) lick ball system. Farm buildings include a four bay shed, three bay implement, a two bay lockable with three phase power as well an additional single bay. The shedding is set up for comfortably rearing of 60 calves. Water is supplied via a consented take that is a recently drilled flowing artesian bore.

The all flat contour and rectangular shape make management of this property easy and appealing. The farm is well raced and in 29 paddocks. It is well fenced with four and six wires internally while the boundary is seven wire hot or eight wire. The soil type is yellow brown loams from water laid ash - ARC report TR2009/044.

A comfortable 1980's four bedroom, two bathroom brick home plus office is handy to the dairy shed and is prefect for a family with expansive indoor living on offer in a solid home with surrounding landscaped gardens.

The local area also offers a great rural community including the local primary school just over a kilometre up the road and excellent rugby clubs at Waiuku and Patumahoe. Hoods Landing, 3.5km away provides easy access to launch the boat for hunting and fishing on the Waikato river. Open west coast beaches for riding, walking and fishing are close by including the surf beach at Karioitahi. A short 10 minute drive will see you in Waiuku while Pukekohe is conveniently located 20 minutes away for all your day to day amenities.

The productive dairy farming area through Otaua and Aka aka is recognised as some of the better dairy country in the greater Auckland region and is a must see for those looking to invest in quality dairy land.
