Franklin County News - - BUSINESS -

A unique Franklin farm prop­erty and busi­ness op­por­tu­nity is on the mar­ket.

Kop­uera Land Com­pany Lim­ited has over the past 8 years tran­si­tioned a 1015 hectare in­ten­sive crop­ping and cat­tle fat­ten­ing unit at Mercer into three pro­duc­tive and ef­fi­cient dairy units which all share con­tigu­ous bound­aries.

The prop­erty now con­sists of ap­prox­i­mately three 338 hectare dairy units that all have mod­ern 60-bail ro­tary dairy plat­forms with Waikato Milk­ing Plants. Two dairy sheds have sup­port­ing feed pads with the third shed hav­ing an in-shed feed sys­tem.

Pro­duc­tion sea­son, be­gin­ning June, has seen the fi­nal tran­si­tion from crop­ping to dairy which now sees the farm car­ry­ing around 2700 dairy cows and an ex­pected end of sea­son tar­get set 1,100,000 kilo­grams of milk­solids.

The prop­erty, 590E Ko­heroa Rd, is be­ing mar­keted by Ian Croft of One Agency Coun­ties and Ian Mor­gan of Farm­lands Real Es­tate.

Croft said the prop­erty had been care­fully planned with the in­ter­nal sub­di­vi­sion be­ing around 260 pad­docks with sig­nif­i­cant and well formed race net­works al­low­ing for easy stock and ma­chin­ery move­ments to all ar­eas of the prop­erty.

This is a full com­pli­ment of hous­ing which in­cludes 10 dwellings and a large pack­house dry stor­age fa­cil­ity com­pris­ing some 2400 square me­tres.

There are 15 ti­tles mak­ing up the to­tal area how­ever there is a scheme plan in place to cre­ate 4 fur­ther ti­tles pro­vid­ing the abil­ity to cre­ate 11 life­style lots. The ven­dors will make avail­able to the pur­chaser the de­tails and plans of this sub­di­vi­sion.

The farm has full man­age­ment in place who have in­di­cated their in­ten­tion to con­tinue with the new own­er­ship struc­ture if they can.
