69 Hectare dairy unit


This exceptional 69 hectare (more or less) dairy unit, with its new lease on life, presents quality infrastructure improvements throughout. Bound to resonate with many, with its appealing location and ability to provide a great platform into the future as a sound investment.

The dairy is centrally located and provides good access via laneways to all 38 paddocks. Built in 2017, the 18 Aside Don Chapman dairy shed includes smart drive Waikato milking plant, an in-shed meal feeding system with 16 tonne silo, a circular 7/8 yard with 300 cow capacity, with backing gate providing good flow into the dairy. A dungbuster automated water dispenser also allows for ease of cleaning.

With 140 cows being milked as autumn calvers, and 60 calves being reared on whole milk, the production last season was 52,033kgs of milk solids. Supplementary hay and balage are both made on farm, with more bought in.

Excellent infrastructure is evident, which includes a four bay coloursteel Kiwispan shed with awning and four commercial roller doors with storage bay and three phase power, the old rotary shed has now been converted for calf rearing and a number of other support buildings including a good set of Te Pari steel cattle yards are also located nearby.

Water is sourced from a bore which is pumped from a new submersible to a tank with automated backflush for the sand filter. With a dosatron inline dispenser in place the water is then reticulated around the farm via 32mm - 25mm main lines with 20mm laterals to all troughs. The fencing is a mixture of both 7 wire post and batten or 2-3 wire electric on the boundary with mostly 4 wire internal electric. Effluent is spread over a part of the property by a contractor.

The main home features three bedrooms, open plan living and dining with a large rumpus room opening out to the swimming pool area. A separate sleep out is included in the three bay garage. The second dwelling is a tidy three bedroom home which has been recently renovated. Both homes enjoy elevated views over the property.

Located north east of Hamilton it's bordered by a rich history and a number of picturesque lakes. This property is a fantastic opportunity to secure a quality, well-presented dairy unit in a great location.
