A cash cow in the heart of the Waikato
Supplying the Tatua Dairy Co-op is a privilege enjoyed by only a few farmers in the prime dairying area near Morrinsville. To join this elite company is normally only achieved by purchasing an existing Tatua farm so a golden opportunity has arisen with the Houghton family rationalising one of their prime assets. This 136 hectare (more or less) dairy, just off State Highway 27, is an exhibition of aesthetic beauty, road appeal and near perfect layout. Currently milking 500 jersey cows through two 20 aside dairies which are linked by one straight race. The property is picture perfect with several groves of natives and around 20 hectares of fenced native bush running along one boundary to provide a beautiful natural barrier to the Waitoa River while enhancing the environmental sustainability of this magnificent unit. Production peaked last season in excess of 215,000ms with a five-year average over 208,000ms. Included in the sale are 190,000 MSE's and Tatua Shares equating to that level. Along with all this farm has to offer are two large duck ponds and several fantastic private shooting spots along the Waitoa River. Along with two 20 aside dairy sheds are numerous calf rearing and implement sheds. Each dairy has a 300 cow concrete feed pad with a 250 tonne concrete feed bunker adjacent. The effluent system comprises unlined ponds with a pump and stirrer and 90mm underground piping to hydrants with travelling irrigators covering approximately 54 hectares. Water is sourced from two main bores, pumped to manacons then reticulated around the farm. The race system feeds out from both dairies to 52 paddocks with all pastures clean and strong as a result of a well-managed fertiliser programme plus most areas having substantial underground drainage. There are four dwellings with the main being a spacious four bedroom home with two large lounges, huge games room and triple garaging. The opportunity to supply Tatua means 'certainty' of very good pay-outs and the 'family' atmosphere of belonging to a niche company.
