Supplying the Tatua Dairy Co-op is a privilege enjoyed by a small number of farmers in the prime Waikato dairy district near Morrinsville. To join this elite company is normally achieved only by purchasing an existing Tatua supply farm.
A golden opportunity to purchase this 50 hectare (more or less) property, with great road appeal and easy to manage layout, on a quiet road should really get your blood pumping.
Currently being share-milked with 170 cows and production last season of just over 82,000 milk solids. The property will be sold inclusive of 75,000 MSE's (Milk Solid Entitlements) and Tatua Shares equating to this season's production.
The modern 16 aside dairy is well located with a race system fanning out from the shed to all 30 paddocks. There is an in-shed meal feeding system with a 16 tonne silo plus the pit area has rubber mating for milker comfort.
Water is sourced from a bore with a submersible feeding to a manacon and pressure pumped around the farm to troughs in each paddock. The main line is 32mm alkathene with 20mm laterals.
Effluent is collected and stored in a clay lined pond (OPUS drop test available) and pumped to a travelling irrigator with approximately 12 hectares of the property covered.
The contour is a mix of flat to gentle rolling with the soil being mostly fertile Kereone loam.
Calf rearing and implement storage is catered for adjacent to the dairy shed.
The main dwelling is a spacious 250m2 brick home nicely elevated with a great vista out to the mountains. Three bedrooms upstairs with good sized living and kitchen areas plus a spacious games room adjacent to the downstairs double garage.
The modern second home has three bedrooms and open plan living with a large car shed.
The opportunity to supply Tatua means 'certainty' of very good payouts and the 'family' atmosphere of belonging to a high value niche company.
A rare opportunity not to be missed.
