MANGARATA - EXCELLENT INFRASTRUCTURE, BALANCE AND LOCATION
264 Caves Road Masterton
This very tidy sheep and beef breeding and semi finishing unit is located just five minutes from Masterton. Since its purchase in 2009 the vendor has enhanced and improved the property - new four stand woolshed and covered yards, new cattle yards, 8 km of fencing, capital fertiliser, drainage and developed the flats and cultivable hills with new grasses, clovers and herbs. There are two houses (three bedroom and a four bedroom) located together with the woolshed, cattle yards hay/implement shed, workshop and other storage sheds just off the sealed Caves Road entrance. Of the total 518 hectares, of which 476 hectares considered effective there are around 25 hectares of alluvial based road flats which are complemented by approximately 50 hectares of easy rolling cultivable land towards the middle of the farm, with the balance of the contour being medium hill country sitting on mudstone soils. There are a high number of tracks through the 48 main paddocks of the property ensuring ease of access and stock movement. The fertility levels are considered good for this land class. Summer and winter fodder cropping as well as regrassing is undertaken to 20% of the cultivable land per annum. The property winters around 3,500 sheep and 150 cattle. Production levels are very good with a normal lambing average of 150-160%. On Masterton´s door step Mangarata would appeal to those seeking a metro-rural lifestyle close to off farm employment, rural services, quality schooling, restaurants and community facilities.
