The existing resource consent allows for 600 cows to be milked and expires in 2028.
All improvements are in excellent condition, the 2008 built 50 bale rotary cowshed, recently renovated four-bedroom house, large fully enclosed implement shed and half-round hay shed all provide a quality level of improvements, whilst not over capitalising the property.
