About this listing
After fifty years our vendors have decided to sell their 173.69 Ha approx. dairy property.
The unique features of this property are:
- The close location to Murchison town ship - you can walk for coffee and the supermarket.
- There are ten titles - potentially there could be some subdivision options.
- Alternative land use - there is 15 ha approx. of 2 year old forestry; and 42 Ha approx. of native and regenerating bush land (hunting on the property).
The dairy operation is currently milking 205 cows with an average of 82,000 MS through a 25 aside herringbone shed with ACR's. The shed and effluent system are fully compliant (a newly installed Tasman Tank with capacity to handle more cows).
The farm is operating as a self-contained 113 ha dairy unit. The cows are milking off 81 Ha, with wintering, calf rearing and supplements produced on the remaining 32 ha. Heifers are grazed off May to May. The 32 Ha is within easy walking distance to the cow shed, so could be used to significantly increase cow numbers and production if the herd was wintered off (FarmWise Consultants report available).
Most of the winter feed is produced on the property including, hay, silage and winter crops. There are four independent water supplies to ensure year-round stock water. The multiple farm sheds include two implement sheds, three hay sheds, two old woolsheds, calf rearing shed and numerous others.
The dwellings include a warm four bedroom main home. This has been updated and improved with modern kitchen, double glazing, good heating and a swimming pool. The second dwelling is a tidy two bedroom workers cottage.
If you are looking for a dairy operation that has the potential of upscaling, has enough scale to warrant having a worker on farm if required; or you are serious about land banking for the future, contact Toby or Sharyn for a detailed property information pack or to arrange your viewing now.
