Punching above production weight

There's huge opportunity here to enter the industry and immediately make gains with this 104 hectare (subject to survey) dairy farm.

In addition to the freehold and for some time, the farm has milked off approximately 70 hectares of adjoining lease land.

Infrastructure to support this beneficial arrangement includes a 40 aside herringbone dairy shed, a five bay implement and calf shed with lean-to, and a 400 cow concrete feed pad. Currently milking 560 Friesian cows, the last three year average production is 268,038. The farm's production method is categorized as System Five.

The mixed contour ranges from flat to rolling with some medium hill and typical of this area, soils are Mairoa Ash. Fences are a mix of conventional and electrics. The races, which branch in multiple directions from the dairy shed are well kept.

There are two water sources; the bore is located near the dairy shed and not far away is the source of the stream supply for milk cooling purposes and washdown. A chiller unit with heat recovery system supplies a separate 25,000litre manacon tank.

Effluent is directed to two large unlined storage ponds before being spread by contractor. One pond is for the dairy shed and the second one is for the feedpad.

The main home is a generous 330sqm, it features five bedrooms, multiple living areas plus a detached sleep-out. The second dwelling is a more modest 140sqm with an arrangement of three bedrooms and an open plan living area. The third home, which is situated on its own title, is 238sqm and provides three bedrooms. All dwellings have bore water supply.

Enjoy your day's off with a bit of fishing on one of the nearby hydro lakes along the Waikato River. The farm is located in Parawera, just a short drive to Te Awamutu for all your supplies and a little further to Hamilton.
