Well-set-up South Canterbury Dairy

Deadline Sale closing 12pm, Thu 24 Oct 2019 (unless sold prior)

Located in Orton, South Canterbury in a well-known dairying area on the southern side of the Rangitata River is this exceptionally well-improved dairy farm that offers flat contour, efficient shape and a favoured size.

Converted 12 seasons ago, this 198.5 hectare dairy farm has been operated in conjunction with a larger property directly across the road, milking through the regular season and retaining winter-milked cows on the property. The 54-bail rotary shed is more than capable of supporting this block, with an extra-large circular yard, drafting system, covered AI race and in-shed feeding for grain, palm kernel, minerals and molasses. There is a well-positioned 13-bay calf shed and adjacent calf paddocks.

Irrigation is drawn from a groundwater bore, and shares in the Rangitata South Irrigation Scheme are included in the sale. The excellent shape complements the two full-circle pivot irrigators, with the added advantage of applying the effluent water.

The property is sub-divided into 23 main paddocks with a circular laneway within close proximity to the dairy shed. Re-grassing is undertaken annually on rotation, after one or two paddocks have come out of fodder beet, which have supported the winter milking. The soil type is Lismore.

A modern four-bedroom manager's home and three-bedroom staff home provide comfortable housing and both have wonderful outlooks across the farm to the mountains.

This provides an excellent opportunity to purchase a very well-set-up and productive dairy unit.
