Re-investment over a long period of time is clearly evident at Pukekaka, making it one of the best presented hill country farms we have been involved with.
Strong country, a significant portion is medium hill with around 100 hectares of flat to undulating country that is regularly cultivated. With a 6 km Rangitikei River boundary, in the main free draining ash soils overlay a papa base, with a strong fertiliser history. Stock water is a mix of local scheme, natural and tapped springs.
The standard of fencing overall is of a high standard, with many new fences, all conventional other than an 80 hectare deer block.
Access is excellent with very good tracks and various laneways radiating from the central stock handling facilities, although the property is also well served with 4 sets of quality satellite yards.
Other recent capital injections include a woolshed upgrade with covered yards and lots of concrete added, alterations to the spacious 1980's main home with great garaging, sheds and outlook.
Impressive results from the 10,000su forward store operation has seen the last 5 years lambing averaging 150%, with the Wairere bred lambs leaving the farm at 35-38kg average (incl. over 2,000 killed last year) and cattle at 18 months. The well bred stock is well regarded and sought after.
Situated just 21km off State Highway 1, south of Taihape, Pukekaka is to be offered for sale by Tender.
Tenders close 11am, Thu 14 Feb 2019, NZR, 20 Kimbolton Road, Feilding.
