Solid performer with a bright future


Deadline sale closing 12pm, 3 Nov 2021 (unless sold prior)

This is your opportunity to purchase a solid dairy performer located within a stone's throw of Rotherham village and nearby Culverden township.

Budgeted to produce 245,000kgMS this season, the 186.7386-hectare property employs a low-input farming system that gets results. Under the current system, our vendors rear around 300 calves on milk only, which equates 8-10,000kgMS on top of the budgeted figure to go to the factory. The recent introduction of two pivot irrigators increased production by approximately 60,000kg/MS, and the installation of two further pivots this summer has the potential to do the same again. Currently milking 600 cows, the property is well-equipped with a 36-aside herringbone dairy and three hay sheds.

The area boasts very good soil quality and this property has an excellent fertiliser history, setting the new owner up for the future. Large areas of the farm have been re-grassed within the last three years. Irrigation water is supplied via low-cost river water, surface-pumped out of two galleries.

A modernised three-bedroom, two-bathroom plus office home is tucked away in a private spot amongst established gardens, and a separate three-bedroom home provides accommodation for staff. This home includes a double garage with workshop.

With schooling, shops, amenities and a thriving community all within ten minutes of home, balancing business with family life is simple. Set in a picturesque location on the banks of the Waiau River with spectacular mountain views, the scope to enjoy the many outdoor activities on offer is endless.

This is a family-friendly farming operation with very good upside.
