Scale, production and location

The Hororata Dunsandel area is renowned for consistent high production, and this impressive large-scale landholding could be described as a true once in a lifetime opportunity.

Consisting of approximately 530 hectares, of which 490 hectares is irrigated, the farm is milking 1,500 cows and supplying Synlait. The property has an exceptional track record that includes "Lead with Pride" certification for five seasons, with over 60 per cent of the cows producing A2 milk and supplying a premium contract.

A large, fully self-contained operation with the exception of young stock being grazed off-site, minimising bio-security risks and demonstrating consistently high profit margins.

The modern dairy operation consists of two rotary platforms. The first is 60-bail, approximately 15 years old, with a new platform installed in 2011 plus a 54 bail shed, built-in 2016. Both are well equipped with in-shed feeding, Allflex automation and drafting, automatic cup removers, and backing gates with auto wash and scrapers.

With seven high-quality dwellings, the exceptional infrastructure and convenient location create an attractive environment for finding and retaining staff.

Families will note the excellent nearby schooling options and access to the array of outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, hunting and skiing right on the doorstep. Christchurch, Darfield, Methven and Ashburton are all within an easy commute of this prime location.

The vendors intend to sell the property as a whole. However, they would consider splitting the property to create two quality units, for the appropriate purchasers.

Bayleys are privileged to bring this exceptional property to the market. Farms of this calibre and scale seldom become available, and combined with the positive outlook of the New Zealand dairy industry, we expect demand to be strong.
