Waikato Property Guide - - Te Aroha -

The Te Puke and Pa­pamoa flats are re­garded some of the best pas­ture grow­ing land in New Zealand, ex­celling in the sum­mer. Sit­u­ated next to the Kaituna River the 136 hectare dairy farm thrives in the sum­mer milk­ing 400 cows. The farm is lo­cated in the heart of the Bay of Plenty only 10 min­utes to the ru­ral town of Te Puke and 25 min­utes to Tau­ranga. The main home was ren­o­vated some five years ago with four bed­rooms and large of­fice which could also be a bed­room; the prop­erty would suit an owner op­er­a­tor. The se­cond home of four bed­rooms makes for a qual­ity staff ac­com­mo­da­tion. A sleepout is sit­u­ated near the cow­shed. The 30 aside her­ring­bone cow­shed with West­falia sys­tem is well-con­structed with in-shed feed sys­tem en­sur­ing re­li­able man­age­ment of feed when needed. Com­ple­ment­ing the cow­shed is a four-bay shed with two bays that are lock­able with con­crete floor, six-bay calf shed, work­shop, two-bay high stud calf shed and a two-bay par­tial closed in calf shed. Fur­ther down the farm is a half round hay barn and two, two-bay sheds. The farm is sub­di­vided into 56 pad­docks with a ring race mak­ing the man­age­ment of a split herd sys­tem sim­ple.
