Large Scale Breeding & Finishing Unit

2 Bray Road, Middlemarch, Dunedin
- 2 Bray Road, Middlemarch
Seldom do large scale properties such as these come available.
An exciting factor of this sale is you have the opportunities to purchase the property in its entirety or as individual properties. While the two properties lie alongside each other they have been run separately in the past and can again.
Over recent years considerable development has taken place over the property, these include ploughing, direct drilling and regrassing with high producing grass and lucerne mixes. Fencing, lanes and tracks along with the water scheme make this a very good property.
Each of the three properties consists of considerable scope as each property is either close to or in excess of 2,000 ha. Animal health is another significant factor as this particular area is well known as an excellent finishing area and this is evident with the large numbers of lambs fattened.
Our Vendors have taken the property to an excellent standard and the opportunity is available for a purchaser to take it to the next level.
