- 272ha Land
The farm is a total area of 563.9792 hectares (more or less) comprising 272.5103 hectares freehold and 291.4689 hectares leasehold. This is made up of a 511.8 hectares effective dairy unit, with some dairy support/drystock areas. The balance is native bush blocks, farm races, houses and infrastructure. There is 65 hectares (more or less) available for effluent irrigation where there are underground lines and hydrants in place.
The farm milks 1000 cows. The dairy herd is wintered on the property on winter crops, and/or within the youngstock/drystock parts of the farm. This farm has a mixture of contours, with the majority of the milking platform being flat to gently rolling. Some easy hill contour exists at the southern end of the farm, and north block on the eastern side of SH1.
An underpass connects either side of the farm beneath State Highway One. This is well constructed, with a concrete base to suit the regular cow-flows through it. Soil testing is conducted annually over several management blocks of the farm. The Olsen P levels over the bulk of the farm are above the agronomic optimum range for pumice soils (35-45), with the exception of hill paddock samples with levels of between (22-143). Typically, five applications of 30kg/ha nitrogen are applied annually to the non-effluent parts of the farm. There are four dwellings on the property which also provide suitable accommodation for staff.
120 Tram Road offers the very best on many levels. A solid investment in the dairy industry, situated in a fantastic location 20 minutes north of Taupo.
