Well presented and ideally located Dairy Farm in the heart of the Horowhenua, ideal as a first farm or managed investment. The vendor currently operates a low input grass based operation, milking an average of 365 mixed age cows. The 131ha milking platform has the advantage of two adjoining lease blocks which have been with the farm for some thirty years and form part milking platform. Average 3 year production is 150,000 kg MS. Subject farm averaging 110,000 kg MS with the remaining MS produced off the 58ha leased support blocks. The farm is predominantly flat and well raced with good internal network of lanes from the cowshed. The farm facilities are of a good standard and handy to main farm operation. Young and dry stock grazed off farm. Very tidy unit with potential to improve production.
