'A-Grade' Farm Environmental Audit Report


Deadline Sale 4pm, Thu 9 Nov 2017 (unless sold prior)

With an eye to the future six years ago, our Vendors set about ensuring this property was as future-proofed as possible, focusing on soil-health and plant nutrition.

This immaculately presented 231 hectare dairy farm with an 'A-grade' audit report, has a platform area of 220ha producing approximately 420,000kgMS per annum including calf-milk and winter-milk, which equals 1,900kgMS per hectare. The cows are milked through a 44-bail rotary dairy, fully automated, making it an easy, one-man milking operation. With the revised fertiliser programme and pasture renewal, there is now excellent root structure, moisture retention and pasture production, which resulted in the farm achieving the Ballance Agri-Nutrient Soil Management award in 2016. The property is extremely well sheltered, significantly enhancing its pasture growth, and is coupled with a nine-day-return Rotorainer irrigation system, set up for ease of management. Already operating well-under the baseline of 42kg of Nitrogen per hectare, whilst maintaining a high level of production, sees the property already meeting the requirements of the land and water strategy and firmly positioned for a great future.

Complementing production and performance are a feed-pad and a full array of sheds, including calf-rearing, hay and implement sheds, workshop and office, and three modern, permanent-material homes, all immaculately presented. The main homestead is a large, four-bedroom family home, very private and set in beautifully laid-out established gardens, plus a large barn and all-weather horse arena. Also available is an irrigated 44ha support block close by.

A quality farm in all respects, inspection is a must.
