The dairy complex has interconnecting sheds containing the dairy, about 170 cantilever cubicles with mattresses, calf pens, handling facilities and ancillary buildings.

They are of steel frame construction beneath corrugated roofs with adequate ventilation, block walls/concrete, central feed passages and slatted bases with automatic scrapers and tanks beneath.

Besides, there is a 28:28 milking parlour with provision for extension. Also, the farm has a bulk tank room with a 6,000-litre bulk tank and coolers and two meal bins.

Furthermore, the farm also has several silage pits, a general-purpose shed/machinery and dry store, and an additional slatted livestock house.

Land

The selling agent explained: “The land is in large practical field sizes and held in a continuous block. Central service laneways lead to Newpark Road.”

“Fields are of a relative rolling topography with stock-proof fencing and mature hedgerows.”

Heritage 

Finally, a traditional thatched cottage, constructed in circa 1820-1839, is on the farm.

The cottage is registered on the Heritage Buildings Database, which deems the building to be of architectural or historical interest. It is categorised as a B1.
