DAIRY FARM - BAY OF PLENTY

Waikato Property Guide - - Bayleys -

Lo­cated in the popular West­ern Bay of Plenty is this 78 hectare (free­hold) dairy farm. The 3 year av­er­age pro­duc­tion is 81,436 milk solids with a fore­cast of 90,000 milk solids for this cur­rent sea­son. There re­mains po­ten­tial to im­prove by adding your own man­age­ment skills. 240 cows are win­tered on farm with the heifer calves car­ried to 1 May. Ex­tra bull calves are also reared on whole milk. Con­tour is flat to rolling and there is a good bal­ance of lower land for sum­mer pro­duc­tion. The 24 aside her­ring­bone shed is centrally lo­cated and there is am­ple shed­ding. The con­crete feed pad al­lows for op­ti­mal uti­liza­tion of brought-in feed. An ad­join­ing lease block of some 9 ef­fec­tive hectares has added to this unit over the years. For di­ver­sity there is an es­ti­mated 24 hectares of hor­ti­cul­tural land which could be de­vel­oped; this has oc­curred on the neigh­bour­ing prop­erty. With Katikati be­ing only 9km away, you are a short drive to the Katikati Golf Course with many leisure ameni­ties in­clud­ing fish­ing and boat­ing at your doorstep and only 27km to Tau­ranga CBD.
