Avington Dairy Farm 71.5ha
Seldom do farms like this come to the market; within 10 minutes of town, fully irrigated, rotary cow shed with ACRs, feed pad, excellent support buildings, two dwellings, an additional 10 hectare milking platform lease and with a production record to match the impressive list of features.
Located on Taonui Road, Feilding our vendor has completed a development program on the property that only leaves the farming to be done. Olsen P levels are well in excess of 25 and the property is subdivided into 2 or 3.75 hectare uniform paddocks, which are all serviced by a lime capped central race system.
Annual pasture production has been measured under the K-Line irrigation system at greater than 16 tonnes of dry matter per hectare. The irrigation and farm water is sourced from the 98 metre bore, consented through until 2027.
The excellent range of support buildings, 28 bale rotary cowshed with automatic cup removers, 300 cow feed pad all make the running of this farm a simple one-man operation. The main dwelling, a 3 bedroom weather board home with open plan living and wood burner is complemented by the 2 bedroom cottage.
With summer pasture production guaranteed by irrigation and winter pasture damage mitigated by the use of the feed pad, this dairy farm must appeal to those looking for a first farm or a highly productive easily managed property.
