Hangawera Valley Goats is a high quality dairy goat operation located close to Morrinsville. This Waikato-based business is to be sold as a fully integrated going concern package including land, buildings, goats, machinery and 100,000 NZDGC Shares.
The property comprises 41 hectares freehold with an additional 19 hectare lease block attached on its southern boundary. The contour is mostly flat to very gentle rolling with it being opened into basically one large paddock for ease of cropping - either maize or baled grass silage.
The farm is currently milking 600 winter milking goats with production last season of 107,711 milk solids up from the previous season of 91,500 milk solids.
Supplying the New Zealand Dairy Goat Co-Operative is a privilege and rather exclusive with the supplying Shareholders being paid an average of $18 per kilogram of milk solids produced.
The owners have taken an average 400 goat unit to a very good 800 goat unit over the past five years by way of a huge capital injection on infrastructure, a quality nutrition-based feeding regime and improved genetics within their milking stock.
The farm now boasts a top of the range 80 bale internal rotary dairy shed with a recently installed computer-controlled Afi-milk meter system and herd management software, auto wash, Glycol cooler and milk recovery systems and auto in-shed meal feeders.
There are two large goat houses plus a kidding shed with an enclosed lean-to for rearing kids and machinery storage. There are also a number of implement and storage sheds.
There is a spacious, modern, four bedroom home with three car garaging plus a second three bedroom home.
Water is sourced from a bore and is of very good quality to meet the strict requirements of the NZDGC. The dairy goat industry is really on a roll so the purchase of Hangawera Valley Goats is a great opportunity to get into a very lucrative industry which is the envy of many in the pastoral industry at present.
