This highly productive dairy farm is located at Dixie in the Western District.

It is currently milking 320 cows and producing 185,000 kilograms of milk solids a year.

The dairy is a 23-swingover with automatic cup removers, auto draft and 14,400-litre vat.

It also has a gravel feed pad.

There are laneways to 45 paddocks and these are watered from a bore via 50-milliimetre waterlines to mostly 4500-litre troughs.

The current pasture has been sown to Nottman Seeds-Matrix, White and Sub Clover.

The land is superbly balanced, with 50 hectares late productive peat, 40ha volcanic ash and 90ha clay loams.

The average annual rainfall is 775 millimetres.

There is a recently renovated well-appointed four-bedroom family home in an elevated and private setting on the property.

The main bedroom has a walk-in robe and ensuite, while the kitchen has stainless steel appliances, soft-close drawers and a dishwasher.

There is substantial machinery shedding, workshop and calf shedding.
