In the heart of the Waikato and supplying the pay-out leading Tatua Dairy Co-Operative is this 112 hectare (STS) property near Waitoa. Many in this catchment area have long desired to be able to join Tatua but the chances are remote, so this sale presents a cracker of an opportunity.

The all flat contour, with mainly Waitoa silt and sandy loam soils, makes for ease of management. The farm is well set up with a Don Chapman 50 bale rotary dairy centrally located with an excellent race system to around 60 paddocks. The dairy features a 500 cow yard, cup removers, 25,000 litre water chill, Wetit teat spray, double banked plate cooler and two water powered backing gates plus all other essentials in a modern shed.

Around 560 cows are currently milked with production to 180,000 milk solids. However, this number of cows and production is achieved with the assistance of an adjacent 45 hectares which is not part of this sale process. Eighty calves are run on with heifers off until May 1st each season.

Included in the sale will be 144,256 Milksolids Supply Entitlements (MSE's) and Tatua Shares. With the 'exclusive' nature of supplying the Tatua Dairy Co-operative this sale opens the door.

A very good race system fans out from the dairy shed with the fencing being a mix of permanent, hedges and drains on the boundary and mostly electric 2 and 3 wire internally.

The water system comprises a bore, at 38 metres, close to the dairy and passing through a sand filtration system before being pumped to the dairy and around the farm. The main water lines are 50 and 40mm alkathene with 25mm laterals. There is an in-line mineral dispenser. Variation 6 has been consented to 609 cows.

The effluent system comprises a sump and stone trap and pumped (10hp pump) around the farm through underground plumbing (4 hydrants) with irrigation via a Williams travelling irrigator covering approximately 20 hectares. A steel holding tank 1600m3 (1.6m litres) is used when it is too wet to apply directly over the paddocks.

Supplements grown on farm annually include 14-15 hectares of maize, 100 tonne stacked grass and 80 bales of silage plus 120 tonne of PKE purchased last season.

Support buildings adjacent to the dairy include a 5 bay O'Neil gable shed, a new 5 bay pole shed for calf rearing with bobby calf load-out ramp and pen, 3 hay barns (may be used for calf rearing), 20 tonne concrete fert/PK bunker plus load out facilities at the dairy shed.

There are three dwellings on the farm with the main a spacious three bedroom brick home with an adjacent sleepout, swimming pool plus garage. The second weatherboard home has three bedrooms and double garage. The third is a spacious weatherboard four bedroom home with a large adjacent enclosed workshop.

This very well set up unit enjoys a top location and the liquid gold Tatua asset.

This property is definitely worth pursuing.
