LARGE SCALE SELF CONTAINED IRRIGATED DAIRY BUSINESS - OPTIONS - 482HA
Kahutara Road Featherston
Bosch Dairy Farm milks close to 1,000 cows in two herds with a five-year average of 378,000kg milk solids off a milking platform of 320 hectares and run-off / supplement land of 160 hectares. A long term lease of a further 25 hectares gives a total farm area of 507 hectares. The property has a very good balance of soils with alluvial silts, sand hill and cropping flats. Fertility levels have been optimised and with three pivot irrigators and a gun covering 227 hectares (72 hectares VRI) grass growth is well supported. The category C irrigation consent has an unutilised 40 l/s that can be used to extend the irrigated area by around 90ha. With multiple titles and six houses the property lends itself to be sold in separate blocks potentially of Kahutara (203ha), Cowshed (81ha), Pukio (197ha) or combinations of those. Pukio could suit as a larger scale cropping block with two pivot irrigators and two houses on Ahikouka Silt Loam soils, and the Kahutara Block as dairy support. The cowshed is a 48 bail Arco internal rotary with in-shed feeding, ACR's & Protrack Vantage® | LIC auto draft system. There are two large calf rearing sheds and ample other support buildings. A property report can be emailed and there is extensive additional detail and mapping as well as financial data available upon request. Inspection by appointment.
