Good sized dairy
This 125 hectare (more or less) dairy unit is located near Ngatea on the Hauraki Plains. With an all flat contour and naturally high fertility soils this well established unit is a genuine performer.
Centrally located is the 28 aside dairy with adjacent large concrete feed pad. Around 320 cows are milked with production of 142,906 milk solids. Calves are on until the end of November and heifers are grazed off.
A good race system feeds out to all 67 paddocks with fencing internally a mix of 2-3-4 electric and mostly 7 wire on the boundaries.
Water is supplied from a metered county scheme and pressure reticulated to troughs in each paddock through a 40mm alkathene mainline and 20mm laterals.
The effluent system comprises a stone trap at the dairy with a large clip tank (2,200,000 litres) for storage. The effluent is pumped through underground piping and hydrants to a travelling irrigator covering approximately 48 hectares.
Supplementary feed includes 40 hectares of grass silage grown on farm with additional 200 tonne DM maize, 100 tonne PK and 400 tonne Brewers Grain purchased. Approximately 11 hectares of chicory and turnips are grown annually.
At the old dairy is a large concrete silage bunker as well as three covered feed bunkers and a large calf rearing shed. There is also a 3 bay gable shed adjacent to the dairy shed.
The main dwelling is a spacious modern home with three bedrooms, ensuite, open plan kitchen/dining with two large separate lounges. Nearby is a double garage with sleepout. The second home has three bedrooms, ensuite, open plan kitchen/dining with separate lounge. It has a double garage with internal access.
