Description

Fully Self-Contained South Otago Dairy Unit


Cairn Dairy farm has been brought to the market as a productive 474 hectare dairy farm. This property represents an opportunity to purchase a fully self-contained unit that has no neighbouring dairy farms, which allows for a tightly controlled bio-security system to be implemented.

Since converting to dairy five years ago Cairn Farm has undergone an extensive development programme including a pasture renewal programme and an extensive fencing programme.

Recent subdivision of the property has changed Cairn farm's programme to operate the remaining 474 hectares as a 600 self-contained dairy unit from the 2019/20 season.

This would make the milking platform an estimated 225 effective hectares with a maximum walking distance of three kilometres with approximately 90% of that area being within two kilometres of the dairy shed.

Under this scenario the remaining balance of the property would be used for a dairy support block.

An excellent range of improvements includes the five bedroom homestead, recently renovated three bedroom house and a two bedroom single person accommodation, 600 cow yard, 54 bail rotary milking shed with automated cup removal, an in-shed automated grain feeding system and silos, large 6.5m litre effluent pond with approximately 120 days storage, various supporting implement sheds, cattle and covered sheep yards and wool shed. Excellent rocked farm tracks provide access to the 135 subdivided paddocks.

Current owners have done all the hard work on this property. All that is needed now is someone to take it to the next level. Option here for investors to keep the current staff and to discuss with a local independent farming consultancy practice about an off farm management arrangement.

Option to lease a further neighbouring 779 hectares for grazing until 31 May 2020.
