    If you are looking for a profitable dairy farm within a stone’s throw from the bustling city of Pietermaritzburg, or a farm with multiple potential, then look no further. This operation has just come onto the market and can be sold as either a going concern, or be repurposed for alternative application. After decades of diligent development and hard work, and no succession in prospect, the owner and his wife now wish to retire.
    Milking an average of 350 healthy Holstein cows at any given time, this operation produced a total of over 2 400 tonnes of milk in 2023, with a butterfat content of 3,96%. All of it is supplied by uptake contract to a reputable processor, whose tanker collects every second day. The contract is part and parcel of the going concern, and, if applicable, can be transferred to a new owner. Cows in milk are fed a measured ration of purchased concentrates, the volume of which automatically compensates their individual milk yield.
    Careful fodder management ensures year-round economical nutrition in the form of Kikuyu pastures from mid-Spring to mid-Summer, followed by maize silage up to early Winter, rounding off the cycle with hay and irrigated ryegrass pastures.
    One large dam and several smaller ones ensure sufficient water resources for irrigation, whereas domestic consumption is sourced from a borehole. A cottage on the banks of the main dam provides relaxation and entertainment for family and friends. An average annual rainfall of 740mm recorded over the past 33 years generally replenishes dry season usage.
    A beef herd of 100 units, plus a small sugarcane enterprise serve to further compliment the dairy’s healthy cashflow.
    Three phase power is drawn from ESKOM, and a standby generator keeps the dairy supplied during outages.
    It must stressed that farms of this magnitude very seldom come onto the market. So if you have the will to invest, together with drive and vision to resume custody of this gem, do not hesitate to contact the agent Ron Gevers on (072)143-6693 without delay.

    • Priced at R39,5 million including 650 unit dairy herd, 55 unit beef herd, and full range of implements if bought as a going concern. Purchase of land only at proportionately reduced rate is optional.
