A rare opportunity has been contracted to our firm to market this large dairy goat operation in the favoured Matamata area.
The Dairy Goat Co-Op market is anchored on demand for dairy goat milk and added value products and is showing consistent global growth in an ever expanding market place.
A total of 144ha (more or less) with approx. 130ha effective of flat to easy contour of cut and carry country for feed production. Soils are predominantly free draining Tirau Ash / loam soils religiously fertilised with goat shed litter and traditional fertilisers.
Currently milking 1200 approx does producing in excess of 135,000/ms with emphasis on retaining as many female kids as possible to fast track the growth of the enterprise. Estimates indicate that the land available for the goat operation would support 1800 approx. milking does and supporting young stock and breeding bucks once a status quo scenario is reached.
The adjoining block is currently milking approx 200 cows and could milk in conjunction with the goat operation.
Infrastructure consists of a 15 year old 100 bale rotary dairy shed, 2 large goat housing sheds, loafing barn, feed storage bunkers and other supporting implement and storage sheds.
Housing consists of 5 homes (2 main dwellings) and 2 single-mans quarters.
The adjoining farm has an 'in use' dairy cowshed, other supporting farm buildings, and is in very good heart.
The third smaller block of 14ha is close by with flat contour on fertile ash soils which compliments the operation.
In all, a very well set up goat enterprise gearing up for a major growth phase in line with Dairy Goat Co-Op directives.
A feature of the operation is the extensive land area to cater for the potential growth of this fast growing industry.
This goat milk proposition needs serious attention from interested parties and will be sold as a going concern with stock, plant and shares valued at time of sale.
