Description

Dairy farm with great scale


Pukewhero Farm provides 132 hectares (more or less) of gently rolling downs in the heart of the popular dairying district of Ngahape.

The property has an appealing layout with a well constructed central race system feeding to 50 paddocks. The dairy platform is 121 hectares and the balance includes four hectares grazing and two hectares which are planted with native trees. A feature of the farm are the freshwater ponds that are attractively landscaped. Having undergone an extended period of pasture renovation and contouring, the farm is now relatively weed free

The 36 ASHB dairy shed, feedpad and support buildings are in the centre of the farm. Around 380 cows are currently being milked, with capacity for up to 525 under the Regional Council consent. The last four year's average production is around 133,000kgMS. Replacements are wintered off and supplements are brought in.

The 350 cow capacity feed pad helps maximise cow efficiency and pasture harvest while minimising feed-out losses and workloads. It was established in 2014/15 along with two concrete silage bunkers and a PKE bunker. Effluent management has benefited from recent improvements that include a concrete effluent solid separator unit and hydrants plus travelling irrigator for the liquids.

Two bores supply water to the two 5,000 gallon tanks before its further reticulated to the main sheds, troughs and dwellings via a separate line. A farm quarry provides rhyolite for the laneways.

The main three bedroom homestead is pleasantly elevated with a view across much of the farm. Recent recladding enabled insulation of the walls and roof cavities. A double garage with a self contained unit provides for overflow accommodation. The two bedroom cottage with insulated roof also has a new single garage.

When viewing please ensure clean vehicle and gumboots. A foot bath will be on site.
