DAIRY FARM - BAY OF PLENTY
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.
