Unforseen issues have led to the point of no return, the vendors have reached the decision where the farm must sell.
Situated in the renowned dairying district of Tirohanga, some 41 kilometres north of Taupo, this farm consists of around 138 effective hectares of easy rolling and some steeper contours. Having produced up to 129,019 milk solids when on a twice a day milking regime, however last season, with a manager, this fell to 70,154 milk solids on a once a day system. Currently the vendors are back on farm with a target of some 95,000 milk solids from 320 cows once a day milking. 345 mixed aged cows, 65 heifers and 27 bulls were wintered on farm.
Approximately 210 ton of PKE is purchased, 13 hectares of summer crop sown, and 30 ton of grass silage made on farm, with the NRP calculated at 66.
Infrastructure includes two three-bedroom Lands and Survey style dwellings, a tidy 22 aside straight rail dairy with in-shed feeders, two large calf sheds, three PKE or fertiliser bins and a disused woolshed. Water is well catered for by way of a farm bore and council water supply.
Given a little time and experience, this property has some fantastic features as a place to live and the ability for production upside. Alternatively use the infrastructure as a well set up support property to a larger dairy unit or beef farm.
