This 103.54 hectare dairy unit on Schollum Road, roughly 15 minutes drive to Hamilton, presents a great early season opportunity to purchase now before prices possibly increase in line with payout. The all flat contour of consolidated peat soil is really looking a picture even after a prolonged wet period. A central race system to all 60 paddock runs away from a very tidy 24 aside shed. There are some good support buildings, including a 3 bay implement shed with lean to. Currently 300 cows are milked with average production of 103,000 kgMS (last three seasons). A model farm system has been put in place by a consultant to increase milk production while keeping the nitrogen loss to under 22kg N/ha , which is the N reference point for the farm (from information provided). The farm grew 6 hectares of maize last season. Cows are wintered on farm and the whole block is well fenced mostly with seven wire fencing. The water is sourced from a bore, trickle feed is also available. The pastures are clean with optimum cover for this time of year and a fertiliser management plan has been followed with all soil records available.
The main dwelling is a spacious 124m2 with four bedrooms, office and large dining and lounge area. The adjacent double garage has a separate room with toilet, shower and laundry. The second dwelling has four good sized, bedrooms, is in very good condition and currently occupied by a farm worker. There is also a carport.
