TAS Country : January 6th 2011
Friday, January 7, 2011 Tasmanian Country 15 Rural property Walk into established dairy showpiece THIS property sets a benchmark by its position, quality of soil and pasture, topography, water re- sources and overall man- ageability. The vendors will also look at offering the farm as a walk-in walk-out con- cern. The current operation will milk about 150 predo- minantly Jersey cows. The cows are milked in a 10-a-side swing-over her- ringbone dairy, upgraded milk line and clusters, 5,700 litre NDA milk vat, eight-tonne silo and feed system and newly installed electronic pulsation and hot water system. The main homestead is a comfortable three- bedroom brick veneer resi- dence with many updated features and refurbish- ments including new car- pets and vertical drapes throughout, freshly paint- ed interior, and recently renewed electric stove. The second, original, homestead is a three- bedroom weatherboard built in the early 1900s. The farm features five dams with a 28.7 megalitre water licence, which im- portantly is supplemented by two bores providing an additional 5000 and 5500 gallons per hour respect- ively. The farm is irrigated with a combination of trav- elling irrigation and K-line pod systems serviced from underground mains and about 10 hydrants. The farm has generous shed facilities with numer- ous barns, utility and ma- chinery sheds, and live- stock facilities including five-bay piggery (plus two- bay extension used as a calf shed) three main barns with a total capacity of up to 450 round bales (depend- ing on size); substantial shearing and storage shed.
