Sharemilkers Opportunity To Grow

Situated just south of Whanganui is this great opportunity to progress to farm ownership.

Having the luxury of Whanganui's great climate and in particular winter pasture production, this farm sits in the coastal strip between Wanganui and Turakina.

The farm consists of 83 hectares freehold which is mainly flat to rolling and 92 hectares of leasehold land and is currently run as a dairy, beef and cropping unit. Along with the climate the farm has very good soil fertility with Olsen P levels on the dairy platform averaging over 40. It is well raced and sub-divided.

Whilst milking around 200 cows with production around 85,000 kgs/ms, this property rears most of the calves born and they are run through to finishing or until they enter the herd.
In addition to this, the farm regularly grows maize crops between 25-30 hectares and these are either cut as maize silage or taken through for the sale of seed.

Stock are watered from a very good bore that supplies quality water to all stock troughs, dairy and houses.

The dairy herd is milked in a modern style 20 aside herringbone cowshed that has a 300 cow yard along with an adjacent feed pad. The herd is split calved and supplies milk to Open Country Cheese.

The farm is also supported with a large six bay machinery shed that doubles as a calf shed, large silage bunker and stock loafing area.

The main house is a three bedroom plus office renovated family home that sits upon a rise with fantastic views over farmland.
The second house is a three bedroom family home that could be well utilised by a staff member.

This property offers a diverse income stream from dairy, beef and cropping and this is due to its coastal climate along with the luxuries of living a short distance from the city of Whanganui which offers a great lifestyle for the whole family.
