Superbly positioned on the banks of the Kaipara Harbour lies this 179 hectare (approx.) dairy farm in 3 titles.
The farm employs four state of the art Lely "Astronaut" milking robots, which provide a continuous 24/7 service. This high tech "autonomous" system not only milks the cows, but it will also draft, feed, and keep a full animal record including heat cycles, milk production and general animal health. This hands-off system allows you to spend more time out on the farm, or out on the water!
Currently operating as a self contained farming unit, it has an effective grazing area of 134 hectares; 73 hectares of which is used as their milking platform - milking 196 cows and producing a production high of 69,564kgMS for Fonterra (952 kgMS/ha and 354 kgMS per cow) along with a further 8800 plus kgMS (approx) given to their calves, whilst the balance is used for cropping and carrying dry cows and drystock. Well subdivided into 58 paddocks and linked by an extensive race network system, other notable features include two Red Path herd homes, bore water, two three-bedroom houses and a full range of support buildings. The farm's highly fertile soils, flat contour, and herd homes have allowed the current owners to crop, cut & carry production, which provides the opportunity to milk through all seasons.
This is not only a farm; it's a great investment opportunity or potential lifestyle change with snapper, duck-shooting and Auckland on the doorstep!
