Efficient, Low Cost Dairy FarmThis dairy farm is a particularly cost effective production unit that is located in the sheltered Mackenzie Valley and in a high rainfall belt of over 1000mm. It boasts a low cost irrigation system with plentiful water, easy to manage flat terrain, good nutrient and moisture holding soils, a centrally located dairy that has been well maintained, extensive infrastructure surrounding it including 3 large machinery sheds and the pastures are in excellent condition ensuring maximum production.
For the family it also ticks the boxes. It has a 2 story, 5 bedroom brick home with 2 lounge rooms and great views. The property is a mere 10 minutes to Scottsdale with its schools, sport, cultural and numerous community facilities and is around one hour from Launceston.
The irrigation system has a virtually no cost gravity line through the property that drives 55 laterals from a 91 mg surety 5 and a 500 mg surety 6 water licence. There are also 2 x 80 mg dams that feed another 25 laterals. One of those dams could be increased easily by say around 200 mg should the need for more water arise on the property or to sell downstream.
320 cows are milked from the efficient 31 unit swing over dairy that features semi-automatic feeders, A-I race, 12,300 litre vat, 2 grain silos totalling around 70 tonnes capacity and a 300 herd holding yard.
The property is on 5 titles and the vendors lease an adjoining 30 ha for dry stock hay etc.
For return to capital.....this dairy farm stacks up with the best of them.....
