Description

Ready for the next generation


For over half a century on this 200ha (more or less subject to survey) dairy farm, the owner has developed this property ready for the next generation.

The farm peak milks 585 cows with an average production over the previous 3 years of 204,000ms. A 40ASHB dairy with an in shed feeding system is situated in the middle of the farm making this an easy walk for the cows. Effluent is spread over approximately 40ha. There is also a grey water system in place at the dairy. The water system is supplied via a single bore with 40mm PVC trenched around the farm in a ring with 32mm to troughs. Approximately 250 calves are reared each year.

The farm grows 15ha of crop, made up of 13ha for the summer using turnips / chicory. 2ha of winter crop being kale. Brought in feed is approximately 720kg of PK per cow per annum. There are numerous trees planted as shade and shelter over the property. Contour is 185ha effective with approximately 135ha flat to easy. With the fertility built up over the previous years and a reasonably well spread rainfall of approximately 1500mm - 1700mm for grass growth, this region is proving to be a very desirable place to live and farm.

Ultimately this farm is ready for the new owner. Whakamaru is known as a great farming district with a close knit community. The farm is only a 45 minute drive to Taupo or a 10 minute drive to the village of Whakamaru where you will find cafes, a dairy, vets and a service station.
