An exceptional opportunity to secure a farming business in a well-regarded area with a made to order balance of soil types. Two thirds of the farm consist of unpluggable volcanic soils suited to high performance in the strategic winter months and one third being of a more clay-based structure, all cultivatable, that can be leaned on more during any drier periods of the year.

The farm is eminently suited to the vendors current management policy that is based on a regime of buying mostly quality exotic based bulls and dependant on the market forces pushing them up to carcass weights of over 400kgs at 20 months. The best live weight animal from one of these lines was 832kgs this season. Alternatively it can be more of a numbers game where individual weights give way to greater numbers moved, should the market of the day dictate that policy is more lucrative. That being generally 150 - 240 head with no supplements being fed and no nitrogen applied.

Heavy applications of total fert, the easy contour of the farm, good subdivision and a strong spring water supply all help to underpin the production on this consistently good performing farm.

Can be purchased in two separate titles.

This farm could equally well handle a swap out of the bulls for dairy heifers or become an excellent dairy farmers run off. Recommended viewing.
