Description

Large scale Eastern Bay of Plenty farm presents options with mixed farm system that shows a proven track record of production.

Situated inland from Whakatane and equal distance to Rotorua is 348.45 fertile hectares (more or less). The contour is mostly flat with some easy rolling hills. Nice wide laneways provide good access around the farm and are set up for high stock numbers.

One of three bores on the property provide ample water for three centre pivot irrigators which guarantee pasture over 120 hectares. A further 65 hectares are planted in lucerne, these combine to protect summer production. Historically set up to milk 850 cows, the property has had consistent production around 330,000 milk solids. For ease of labour management the farm has recently dropped milking cows to 450, cropped up to 100 hectares and carried some dry stock. A new owner may see the potential to continue milking and carrying a lot more young stock.

Farm improvements include a 50 bale rotary cowshed with the capacity to be extended to 60 bales, with a 500 cow capacity, circular yard, automatic cup removers are in place but not currently used. Additional is an in-shed meal feed system with grain crusher, automatic teat spray, protrack drafting and automatic heat detection system. An ice bank pre cools milk to 7 degrees into the vat.

A brand new fully consented 850 cow capacity, effluent system will be completed shortly and prior to settlement. A covered AB race with head bale, yards and load out race is situated next to the cowshed. A PTO generator is in place and ready to take over in any power outage. Further improvements include a lockup workshop and implement shed with concrete floor and three phase power.

Farm owner accommodation is provided by a good quality four bedroom family home offering a large kitchen and dining, with multiple living areas. A large wrap around north to west covered outdoor deck showcases long rural vistas over the farm from its elevated position. Second in charge will be comfortable in the...
