M bovis affects sales, transfers


Alan Williams

HE speed of Mycoplasma bovis disease spread could put some dairy farm sales at risk even where contracts are already unconditional, a Christchurch commercial lawyer says. M bovis might never have been contemplated, even in contracts that contain livestock condition clauses, but it might now be an issue in deals due to settle around June 1, Duncan Cotterill associate Emma Tomblin said. “We are not aware of unconditional contracts which haven’t settled on the due date but we are concerned this could be coming through.” If buyers are in that position they should see their lawyer as soon as possible rather than leave it as a last-minute issue, she said.

The disease spread had stopped some conditional sales, where buyers had not confirmed due diligence and had cancelled contracts. The testing and clearance process takes a lot of time and has been an issue for conditional contracts, Tomblin said. There has been pressure on timeframes, affecting buyers’ ability to commit. Property Brokers Real Estate in Ashburton has had a couple of sales, one including a herd transfer, subject to clauses relating to M bovis, which had taken time to receive animal health clearances but they had eventually been obtained, rural manager Mark Lemon said. The May/June period is important for dairy farm sales because it covers the changeover of dairy seasons and existing transactions will be in their later stages. Farms going on to the market from now on will probably have

settlement dates out into the next year so the M bovis issue can be covered, he said.

We are not aware of unconditional contracts which haven’t settled on the due date but we are concerned this could be coming through. Emma Tomblin Duncan Cotterill Tomblin, whose work includes the agri-sector, said farmers intending to sell their farms need to take early action to minimise possible impacts. That involves complying with Ministry for Primary Industries guidelines, avoiding herd contact

with other livestock and ensuring equipment is thoroughly cleaned and animal health and stock movement records are up to date. Prospective buyers will want to be more vigilant in their due diligence, getting all the information they can on milk test results, all other animal health issues and herd movements on and off the property. There is also a major issue for sharemilkers changing farms between seasons and the same issues apply. Milk testing is being done in a national surveillance programme but testing laboratories are under pressure and it takes time to get results. Tomblin said M bovis might change the way livestock are included as part of farm sales, from the situation now when contracts typically allow for animal health requirements to be considered during stock valuation just before settlement. The animal health issue comes

at a time when there is little activity in dairy farm sales in the region, for a number of reasons. PGG Wrightson general manager of real estate Peter Newbold said M bovis will be influencing farmers’ decisions whether to list a farm for sale and on other people’s appetite to buy. Issues around bank lending, weather, the rules on overseas investment and environmental regulation are also contributing to the lighter sales activity. Banks are still prepared to lend but are placing stronger criteria on a buyer’s balance sheet strength and cashflows. The industry is also waiting on Overseas Investment Office decisions on a lot of applications involving overseas buyers and for any legislative changes and that is slowing down that part of the market. There is good demand for sheep and beef farms, at good values, but not a lot of activity because there are not a lot of farms for sale.

Real Estate 0800 85 25 80


The accommodation has a country feel.

Retreat to immaculate trophy farm MATURE kauri, fantastic views and an immaculate park-like farm create Kauri Downs, an 88ha property perched on the edge of Mahurangi West Peninsula. The lifestyle grazing farm with its two titles enjoys spectacular 360-degree coastal and rural views that take in Sullivan’s Bay and Te Muri Regional Park with the Coromandel Peninsula beyond. John Barnett, Bayleys country property specialist, says the property will be a relaxing weekend retreat or a trophy coastal farm with its 17 wellfenced paddocks and extensive metalled track system.

About 20ha of mature kauri, nikau palms and puriri adorn the farm, which has been conservatively farmed wintering 50 steers and 60 breeding ewes, which achieve a lambing percentage about 149%. “You would struggle to find a property that big and that spectacular this close to Auckland,” Barnett said. “The owners have owned the property for the last 20 years. The commute time from Auckland’s CBD is a mere 40 minutes so they regularly pop up to move stock or just to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.”

He says the property’s close proximity to Auckland, Puhoi, Warkworth, Matakana and the local beaches means they are never short of friends calling for an unexpected dinner party or a barbecue. The stylish barn-type accommodation provides a place for people to stay while working or playing on the farm. It also poses a luxury bed and breakfast opportunity or somewhere to live while building a dream home on one of its multiple sites. The home has polished concrete floors and open-plan

living which makes the most of its rural and coastal views. A pine wood finish gives the insulated home a country feel. “Everything on the property is in mint condition and they’ve had local contractors regularly put more metal on the driveways and clean out drains. “In the last 20 years they have put in over 12km of fences so they’re all in pristine condition.” Both titles are accessed with legal metal roads and the second title has the same amazing views. He says the property has been set up to enjoy the present as well as maximise its future potential,

including power capacity at the transformer for up to 10 houses. For its farming operation, the property has a large set of cattle yards, a woolshed, hayshed and the extensive metalled track plus a plus a Kawasaki Mule and farm equipment to get new owners started. Tenders for the farm close on March 29.

This farm has an affordable production system. This farm is on 142ha with more profit still in the system.

Growth in the system SET in an idyllic location near Mangawhai is a profitable 142ha Northland farm that still has more profit in the system as well as three titles. Operating with an absentee owner, the farm has been conservatively run to achieve its three-year average of 73,351kg milksolids from 230 cows. No heavy doses of nitrogen, introduced feeds or expensive external grazing bills have made it very affordable production and the farm is not over-capitalised for buyers. About 120ha makes up the milking platform with the balance in native bush and the effective pasture is made up of rye, clover and kikuyu.

In the past nine years there’s been a solid regrassing programme using One50 and the farm has been consistently fertilised based on soil test recommendations. Undulating contour on the farm flows over naturally fertile limestone soil, with a limestone rock quarry used to maintain the base of the extensive central lane system. It connects the 65 paddocks with the 22-bail rotary dairy, a newly-built five-bay implement shed that is used for calf rearing, a disused dairy and more sheds. Catherine Stewart from Bayleys says additional infrastructure could be added to the farm for a new owner who wants to lift

production or it could be business as usual on the farm for someone wanting conservative, affordable production. Within an easy drive to the surf at Mangawhai Heads is the fourbedroom homestead, which is a renovated house surrounded by a large deck. The area is made up of dairy, beef and lifestyle properties, which gives the farm, 9.8km from Mangawhai, potential for development as well. Stewart says the vendors have explored the possibility of subdivision potential in the future and a draft scheme plan is available. “It’s affordable production in such a great location — only 4km

The farm has 65 paddocks and a 22-bail rotary dairy.

Winter dairy heifers in the north AN OUTSTANDING location near Northland’s Mangonui Harbour and Coopers Beach sets the tone for a 138ha beef unit that is for sale by tender. Just 12km away is the bustling Mangonui village and its famous fish n chip shop on the water plus bars, restaurants and boutique shops. Kilometres of unspoiled coastline run in both directions with an abundance of white, sandy beaches as well as rugged, rocky coves. It’s a region Claude Shepherd

from Barfoot and Thompson says is well known for its safe swimming as well as bountiful fishing grounds. On an estimated 129 effective hectares, the farm has been carrying about 1700 stock units at the peak of summer and normally winters between 250 and 300 dairy heifers. As a former dairy farm, it boasts a good array of farm buildings from implement and hay sheds to calf-rearing sheds, disused dairy and a couple of sets of cattle yards.

The four-bedroom home is set in attractive grounds.

A woolshed has also been used for calf rearing and it has the shearing plant as well. The farm even has a walk-in fish and bacon smoker plus a walk-in chiller unit. Added to that, about 40% of the farm is serviced by well-formed metal lanes, with the balance accessed via good-quality clay tracks. They lead to the 40 paddocks, which are fenced with mainly two to three-wire electrics and most paddocks are further divided into cells or strip grazing, providing

about 120 paddocks using tapes. A reliable gravity-fed water supply is troughed to all of the paddocks. Just minutes from the farm is a lime quarry that supplies the 100 tonnes that have usually been applied to the paddocks as part of the annual fertiliser programme, which also includes six to 10 tonnes of 15% potassium super and sulphur. The entire farm can be fertilised via ground spreading as 75% is easy rolling country and the

balance is medium to steeper hill. Set in attractive, mature grounds is the comfortable fourbedroom home with a detached sleepout, providing the base for both farming and the enviable Northland lifestyle. Tenders for the farm close on March 29.

Three quarters of the farm is easy rolling country and the balance is medium to steeper hill.

The cow barn measures 30m by 50m.

The farm carries 160 cows in a high-input system.

This farm has a 24-aside herringbone and cow barn nearby.

Rolling farmland and appealing base ROLLING farmland with scattered bush and harbour views makes an appealing base for an 80ha dairy farm that is within commuting distance of Auckland. Wharehine lies west of Wellsford at the base of the Tapora Peninsula, which sits between two arms of the Kaipara Harbour, offering an idyllic lifestyle just 85km from the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Historically, it has been a strong dairy and beef farming area while today numerous lifestyle blocks are a result of the commuting distance to the city. “It’s a factor that will attract

investors as well as city families who have members keen on pursuing careers in farming,” Nicky Reid from Connections Real Estate says. “It would suit a first-farm buyer as well as someone with an eye to the future who wants to secure land in a prime location.” The farm sits in a north-facing basin with several patches of beautiful mature native bush, including more than 2ha with a QE11 covenant. Just 2km away is a boat ramp to access the Kaipara Harbour, which is renowned for its fishing.

On the farm itself about 74ha is effective grazing, which is split into 52 paddocks predominantly covered in kikuyu. Last year the sharemilker put 7ha into oats and the previous season grew 7ha of chicory. The basin has its own catchment and this is collected in two dams that supply water for the farm while water is also collected off the roof of the herd home. He has been running a highinput system, milking 160 cows in a split-calving regime and last season produced 53,274kg milksolids.

Cows are fed 600kg of bought-in feed a year, which is made up of dried distillers grain and maize mixed with silage and spread from a wagon. A large cow barn measuring 30m by 50m provides a platform for a high-input production system and sits close to the 24-aside herringbone dairy, which has a children’s room built onto it so the family can keep an eye on the little ones playing while milking the cows. After milking its back to the three-bedroom home with its modernised kitchen and surrounded by an established

garden that includes a magnificent oak tree for the kids to play under while nearby are stands of native bush to enjoy. “The farm can also be sold as a going concern with the herd and machinery and it’s available for a walk-in and walk-out settlement through the season.” The property has a rateable valuation of $1.375 million and has a deadline sale of April 5.

Raydon carries 80 breeding cows.

Room for more THE Brothers Range brings good rainfall to the 534ha sheep and beef farm, Raydon, near Timaru which has been well developed in the past two decades and has scope to lift production. Just 21km from Pleasant Point places Raydon in a handy location for its farming operation which has been running about 2500 breeding ewes and 80 breeding cows. Male lambs are finished and steer calves are sold to a repeat buyer while all their own replacements are kept. Jon McAuliffe from Bayleys says Raydon is a well-balanced property that benefits from increased rainfall on the Brothers Range and it has potential for

a new owner to lift production further. “It’s a very well presented property. “The vendors are good farmers who have farmed it for 23 years and in that time have developed the infrastructure to a high level, with a lot of the tracks shingled and ongoing pasture renewal.” Part of the owner’s long-term policy is developing new land where possible and it now has about 39ha of winter feed or new grass drilled. Raydon’s four-bedroom homestead has been tastefully renovated and the farm has a two-bedroom cottage which has been ideal for extra family or visitors.

The farm has a four-bedroom homestead and a two-bedroom cottage.

Among the farm’s infrastructure is a three-stand, raised-board woolshed with covered yards for 700 ewes, plus a full set of sheep yards attached to it. A lane system developed for ease of management leads to sheep and cattle yards on the hill country. The farm also has a five-bay implement shed plus a workshop, granary, four-bay shed and an airstrip. Raydon is for sale via deadline private treaty.

The Lamberts have planted about 20,000 trees on the farm.

Family ends 90-year development IN 1928 Eric and Mabel Lambert shifted from Wellington to Putauaki, beneath Mt Edgecumbe, a journey of over 500 kilometres. Eric was an accountant for a local timber merchant though he also supplied town milk. Dairy took them north. “When they arrived the whole farm was in manuka and swamp,” grandson Eddie Lambert says. “They brought 10 cows with them. “On one side the neighbour’s development was a bit further ahead though the fences weren’t and the neighbour’s cows would walk in to

graze happily on our farm. “Mabel was a city girl from Wellington and the story goes that grandad came up first, then grandma followed, coming on the train most of the way then the last stretch by horse and cart. “With the land being just swamp the cart fell into a mud hole and Mabel’s best china broke before she even arrived then they dumped all her possessions on the lawn of the little cottage. It was a very challenging time for her.” Clearing the land was a huge hurdle and is still not finished. “In those days it was all done with a

horse and cart, and dray. “We still have some native logs under the surface where the stumps weren’t taken out once it was drained. My grandparents had to carry on dynamiting the stumps out of the ground. As a boy I remember finding detonators in the workshop and about the farm. It was a thrill to find them, of course as children weren’t supposed to have them.” Eddie’s parents Roy and Nan married in 1948 and when Eric died in 1962 they took over the farm. “Dad was 10 when his parents came up here. Although he went to school for a couple of years after that he had to wake

up early to milk the cows then he was strapped for being late to school because of the milking and after school he was kicked up the backside for being late home after having to do detention so he left school and started working on the farm full time at age 12.” Roy and Nan raised seven children on the farm, the youngest being Eddie. “It was very physical for them and as they were brought up through the Depression they were always conservative as farmers. Farming had to be profitable. You could never borrow money. “Only once you made a profit could you

Weed control on the hill was one of our weekend jobs. There was never any ragwort or thistles. Running an aesthetically pleasing farm was always a major focus,” Eddie says. Along with his brother Ken, Eddie went to boarding school in Feilding in the late 1970s. “They had huge oak trees there and in his last year at school Ken brought home a bag of acorns and planted them. Now we have 50 large oak trees in the corners of paddocks and gateways, which was the start of our tree planting regime,” he says. With their wives Kath and Debbie, Eddie and Ken took over the farm from their parents in the early 1980s. Eddie and Kath bought out Ken and Debbie about 10 years

later. They reckon they have planted about 20,000 trees on the farm since, including pines, lusitanica, liquid amber, ash and elder. “Kath went to Field Days 23 years ago and visited the New Zealand Forestry Association site. She entered a draw and won 200 poplar seedlings, which we planted all over the farm for shelter and shade,” Eddie says. They have also developed three wetland areas totalling 10ha, including one under a QEII Trust covenant. “We had help from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council. They provided the material, including the trees, posts and fencing and giving us a planting plan. We had to do all the work including planting the trees. “One time a truck turned up with 1700 seedlings three weeks before calving. We

While Eddie Lambert might describe himself as a tree-hugging greenie he is also a born and bred farmer who has spent the last 20 years working on the genetics in animals bred from two exceptional Friesian cows. thought ‘How the hell are we going to do this?’ We managed to bring in some friends and neighbours and made a working bee of it though it was a huge amount of work.” They planted pittosporum, kanuka, manuka, smaller natives around the wetlands and grasses on the edge. “I’m a bit of a tree hugging greenie. “I love to be able to go up the hill and look down on the wetland. “Because they gave us the right trees and a good planting plan it looks really beautiful. “We have plenty of ducks and pheasants on the farm and a big increase in wetland birds. It has been hard work and even though it was swampy so not ideal for pasture, we did have to lock up part of the farm. However, all that has been more than worth the effort,” Eddie says. Re-creating the farm’s wetlands has been a love that the couple has shared while another has been improving the genetics of their much-admired Friesian herd, which has won them acclaim and contracts from LIC and CRV. “Good cows are always our goal and we had one really good cow, born in 1998. We were using the BI system then and when we had the herd tested we were told ‘You need to come and look at this cow’. Her sister turned out just as well so we went on to breed from those two cows, flushing the cows out, collecting the embryos and breeding from their daughters and progeny. “In 20 years we reckon we have bred well over 100, maybe as many as 150 direct descendants of those two cows,” Eddie says. After 90 years in the Lambert family, Eddie and Kath have reluctantly decided to sell. With two daughters and two sons, they reckon it would be impossible to pass

on the farm in a way that helps one without disadvantaging the other three. Succession planning has taken awhile. “We’ve been talking about it for around eight years. Our children have supported us. They are the ones that are saying ‘You can’t keep going working as hard as you have. You need to enjoy life’,” Eddie says. They have engaged Phil Goldsmith of PGG Wrightson Real Estate, Whakatane to market the property, which has 140ha freehold, with 80ha of transferable leases. A 24-a-side herringbone dairy shed milking up to 450 cows produced 209,000 kilograms of milksolids in 2014-15, supplying Open Country. “After three generations of the Lambert family farming this property with heartfelt care the evidence of their expert husbandry and proud attention to detail is readily apparent,” Goldsmith said. “Both the reclaimed wetland areas and the trees they have planted add immense environmental appeal and aesthetic value to a farm that has demonstrated excellent production out of a herd that also shows the meticulously high standards Eddie and Kath adhere to.” As an added feature, the Lambert farm is almost adjacent to the planned multispecies geothermal milk processing plant under development by the Poutama Dairy Group, an enterprise comprising six Maori entities from eastern Bay of Plenty. Eddie and Kath Lambert’s farm is for sale by tender, with offers closing on March 29.

THE NEW ZEALAND FARMERS WEEKLY – March 12, 2018 0800 85 25 80


This farm has moderate breeding hills with nearly 300ha of finishing country on one plateau.

The expansive flats have silt loam soils.

The farm is divided into 76 paddocks with about 100ha of deer fences.

Hills and flats are in perfect balance Chester’s real point of difference.” The 637ha property includes the 469ha Chester block plus the 168ha Agnew block, with a central lane running through the flats to connect the two woolsheds and their covered yards. On the combined blocks the owners have been running a flexible breeding and finishing system that last year included 4000 breeding ewes and 1200 bought-in lambs and hoggets for finishing, 120 mixed-age Angus cows, 40 R2 heifers and 150 calves. Lambing kicks off from the end of July, which allows lambs to be weaned from mid November with the aim of sending a high

proportion to slaughter before Christmas at 18kg CW, as well as most ewes. Typically, about 5000 lambs are then bought in from mid December and are stocked at 30 lambs/ha on lucerne for finishing. The system enables four rotations from mid November to May. On the cattle side of the operation, male cattle are slaughtered before their second winter and an extra 200 cattle are bought in to finish. Barnett says the owners have had a strong focus on pasture renewal and most of its pastures are less than six years old. In the past few years the mix


built in the 1930s sits on an elevated site, well off the road, where it enjoys a north-easterly outlook over the property. A second home is located near one of the woolsheds. Chester lies on the edge of the Hunterville township, which is a busy centre for the local community and hosts the annual Huntaway Festival. Tenders close on April 11.

THE perfect balance of moderate breeding hills encircling a large expanse of flats with silt loam soils provides the base to make Chester one of Hunterville’s premier properties. Peter Barnett from NZR says those versatile Kiwitea soils have few peers when it comes to livestock finishing and are equally suited to a wide range of crops that have been growing on the flats including lucerne, maize, cereals and potatoes. “People love the balance but the thing they say that really stands out for them is the big chunk of nearly 300ha of Kiwitea silt loam finishing country in one contiguous plateau — that’s

This property comes with all the gear necessary for the next kiwifruit harvest.


The three-bedroom house is in established grounds.

Home and income A SMALL kiwifruit orchard near Marton is an opportunity to add an extra income stream from a handy location. The owners of the 3.3ha orchard were able to manage the kiwifruit during their weekends when they worked elsewhere then continued to manage it for extra income when they retired. Doug Glasgow from PGG Wrightson Real Estate says the orchard has been a workable size for part-time income and last season produced more than 20,000 trays of green kiwifruit from 2ha. As the property is for sale as a going concern, the necessities for the 2018 harvest are included in the sale such as the tractor, sprayer, mulcher, spreader, rideon mower and an assortment of pruning gear. A three-bay shed with one bay lockable

provides facilities and storage for the operation. The orchard sits just 10km from Marton on desirable Kiwitea loam soils and usually experiences a safe climate with up to 1200mm of rain a year. Water is supplied by a dam on the neighbour’s property and covered by an easement while domestic water is stored in a 24,000l tank. A welcoming, well presented and quality three-bedroom home is set in established grounds with decking on two sides to provide ample space for outdoor living. Tenders for the property close on April 11.

The farm carries about 450 dairy heifers.

The scale to diversify providing FARMERS today want diversity in their business to provide various income streams and self-contained units to have control of their stock but it takes scale to achieve that — scale such as the 326ha Scotswood in Mid Canterbury provides. The former sheep and cropping farm near Hororata has been grazing dairy cattle for the past few years, carrying about 450 dairy heifers and a similar number of calves in addition to 46 Angus cows and 150 sheep.

Last year irrigation was added to the farm to cover about 109ha with three centre pivots now guaranteeing feed supply and adding further versatility to an already productive farm. Ben Turner from Bayleys says Scotswood has the potential to finish lamb and beef, provide dairy support or even convert to dairying and be a self-contained unit. “It could be a diverse dairy operation with other enterprises because of its scale.

“To have some diversity within the one operation on one large-scale farm is a real opportunity in that location. “You’ve got control and the farm is completely surrounded by road frontage for a good buffer from other farms as well as providing good access.” The recently-added irrigation has been gained through 1608 ordinary shares and 100 construction shares in Central Plains Water, with rights to stored water. This gives

the property the potential to irrigate 130ha. Each year, the farm usually makes 450 bales of balage and grows a range of winter feed that is typically 50ha of kale, 25ha of fodder beet and 45ha of giant rape. Numerous farm support buildings cover implements, storage, hay and a three-stand raised-board woolshed with covered yards for 800 woolly ewes. A sound set of cattle yards is capable of handling 200 adult cattle, with crush and
