The road to farm ownership


The Spring 2018 edition of Country is out now, with a fresh line-up of the best farm, specialty and lifestyle properties for sale altogether in one place. We also raise a glass to New Zealand hops and the craft beer industry; look at the viability of timber processing to make our forestry sector more competitive internationally and discuss wealth creation for farmers through commercial property investment. Plus we check out A&P Shows and calf days to see how they keep our rural traditions alive. For your copy of Country magazine, including the latest insights and editorial content on key topics of interest to the rural property sector, call 0800 BAYLEYS or view online. Your search for something altogether better starts here.


More value from trees a big challenge Interest in forestry and wood processing from government is welcome, but adding value to logs can be a tough job.

The show must go on

The traditional A&P Show is holding its own in a changing society and continues to unite rural and urban communities.

FARMERS WEEKLY – October 15, 2018 0800 85 25 80


Foreign funds loss hits liquidity Alan Williams THE loss of foreign buyers is taking liquidity out of the Canterbury dairy farm market and is likely to lead to further softening in prices, valuation group Colliers says. At the same time existing farmers are reluctant to increase their risk after two seasons of poor milk payouts and environmental regulation is increasing. Since a Government directive last November there have been no overseas sales of Canterbury dairy farms, Colliers director Greg Petersen, a lead-author of a report on the sector told a seminar in Christchurch on Wednesday. Foreign investment reached a peak in 2013-14, continuing at a lesser but solid pace through 2016-17. That capital often had a trickle-down effect of lubricating the market with several downstream transactions and farms changing hands because of the flow of money from overseas, he said. In the peak year $171 million was invested directly from overseas in Canterbury dairy farm sales, excluding the major Purata company share deal involving 13 farms, making up 39% of sales by value and 35% by sales volume.

Farm for the future Having undergone substantial capital expenditure in recent years, this dairy farm provides the perfect base for future farming, from both a productivity and environmental aspect. Approximately 93ha, milking around 340 cows, it produced a three-year average of 146,688kgMS including some winter milk. It has a 430 cow barn, a well-maintained 16 ASHB dairy, full complement of farm sheds and is fully irrigated. A fivebedroom family home completes the package.

The removal of that capital is the greatest impact on the market, Petersen said. “We consider the effect will be hardest felt by larger scale properties above $10m in value and beyond the reach of most New Zealand-based market participants. “These vendors may need to consider cutting their farms into separate blocks or reducing their prices,” Petersen said. Colliers is aware some large-scale corporate farmers are considering selling a minority interest, less than 25%, as a way of bringing in foreign capital without needing Overseas Investment Office approval. The reduced liquidity, including tighter bank lending rules, is expected to lead to continued softening in the market. “It appears as though buyers are not particularly motivated to purchase. There is no compelling reason to act now rather than in 12 months’ time. “The fear of missing out in the face of rising asset prices has subsided. “We think there is a pervading view that if the market thinks prices will ease then purchasers will hold off until those vendors needing to sell are compelled to accept a lower price and then other vendors may also gain the confidence to sell at a lower level.” In an interactive exercise, Petersen asked his audience if they thought the next year is a good time to buy a dairy farm. The response was yes from 18 people and no from eight. Petersen added his vote to the latter group. Environmental issues and bank lending policies are also major factors in the outlook. The report said most banks now require interest and principal to be repaid, where previously loans were mainly on an interest-only basis.

The fear of missing out in the face of rising asset prices has subsided. Greg Petersen Colliers Though continuing low interest rates are a positive influence, principal being repaid is increasingly being repatriated back to the Australian parent-banks, rather than being available to fund other dairy farm transactions. Petersen’s research indicates the first tranche of environmental restrictions on dairy farms should quite easily be managed as impacts are reduced with some quick wins from low-hanging fruit. However, the next level of reductions will involve more pain – either investment in new technology or reductions in stocking rates and fertiliser use. The Waimakariri regional plan is due for release soon and the risk is it might involve nutrient reductions beyond market expectations and negatively affect values. During the high-demand, high-price era of a few years ago there was little differentiation in demand between

Banks are repatriating principal repayments to their Australian owners rather than making the money available for more dairy sector lending, Colliers director Greg Petersen says.

higher-cost, lower-reliability irrigation water schemes and those where cost and reliability were more favourable. Colliers said more recently buyers were focusing on those differences, as well as on modern on-farm irrigation infrastructure. While there will be a price impact in most areas, Mid Canterbury is an exception with Petersen expecting farms to continue selling well because of favourable water scheme attributes as well as the stronger balance sheets of neighbouring farmers. The report said the outlook for 201819 is for strong milk payouts above the historical averages by the four processors active in the Canterbury region, Fonterra, Synlait, Westland and Oceania – though it was compiled before Fonterra (on the day of the presentation) reduced its forecast to between $6.25 and $6.50/kg MS, down from $6.75. That compared with Fonterra’s 10-year rolling average of $5.99/kg MS and 5-year average of $5.90. The Synlait and Oceania payouts have exceeded Fonterra’s while Westland has struggled, though the report noted so far farm prices have not differentiated between the processors. Collier’s has worked on a longer-term, steady-state milk price of $6.25/kg MS. The higher farmgate payout mixed with the expected lower farm values resulted in an expected higher yield from investment. That reflects increased risk, Petersen said. Higher yields are required because buyers need a greater return on capital to reflect that risk.

FARMERS WEEKLY – October 15, 2018

Cattle yards, implement sheds and hay sheds are part of the essential infrastructure.

Support or standalone THE well-balanced 545ha Dannevirke sheep and beef farm, Atahua, is a rare opportunity to buy such a well located and versatile property. Located just 11km south of the town Atahua lies in an area known for its great farming climate with generally reliable rainfall through the year. It combines with clean country on strong, healthy soils that flows over 24ha of flats and 40ha of easy

contour merging into 480ha of medium and steep hill country. In recent times Atahua has been operated as a support unit to graze young stock for Lagoon Hill Station, which has a large breeding operation and is also for sale. In February each year about 4000 ewe lambs arrive on Atahua and are mated as hogget, with a resulting 85% at lambing. The hoggets are grown out

and returned to Lagoon Hill the following February with the balance slaughtered as hoggets. Usually 2500 lambs are slaughtered from Atahua at 18kg to 19kg carcase weight, which are a combination of the hogget lambs and cull ewe hoggets. In April or May about 125 weaner heifers arrive from Lagoon Hill Station to be grown out and returned two years later, which means the property is running

two age classes and about 250 head. The heifers are put to the bull as rising two year olds, calved and their weaners sold to the store market the following April/May. Back in calf, the cattle return to Lagoon Hill Station as rising three year olds. Tony Rasmussen from Bayleys says Atahua has undergone extensive improvements in recent years and still has the potential

to go to the next level either as a standalone breeding and finishing property or as an additional finishing unit. “It’s a standalone property with strong soils and a good balance of country in a good climate. “There’s a lot of easy contour and potential to do more cultivation and improve the finishing component of the property. “A good laneway goes through

VERY TIDY RUN-OFF AND FINISHING BLOCK - 159HA Hollow Rock, 286 Dry River Road, Martinborough, South Wairarapa Hollow Rock is a very tidy property that has been well farmed by three generations of the Hancox family, since 1906. The 159 hectare property has a great balance of contour with around 60% cultivatable and most of that area re-grassed within the last 5 years. The balance of the land is medium hill and sidlings in pasture giving an estimated effective area of 152 hectares. Regular fertiliser applications are evidenced by soil test results close to optimal. The property has a reliable water supply and is thoughtfully subdivided for grazing and fodder crop cultivation. The farm has been used as a dairy run-off and recently as an adjunct to a large scale trading and finishing property. As a run off the property wintered 450 cows and carried 140 yearling heifers, with silage cuts also taken. There is a two stand woolshed, sheep yards and cattle yard with load outs located at the sealed Dry River Road. Centrally located up a well metaled track is a 35 tonne fertiliser bin, two bay hayshed and satellite sheep yards. Red metal and gravel are available on the property. The sweeping rural views of the lower Wairarapa valley, Lake Wairarapa and the Tararua mountain range together with its handy location to Martinborough, and plentiful elevated building sites offer up some subdivision potential. With its land class and location Hollow Rock will appeal to many.

FARMERS WEEKLY – October 15, 2018

This farm offers the options of a 118ha dairy unit with infrastructure, a 125ha drystock unit with a house and 17ha of flat land with a house. 0800 85 25 80


The 118ha dairy unit milks 600 cows.

Dairy, drystock and horticulture averaged 217,493kg milksolids over the past three seasons, made supplements and leased out a few hectares of prime horticulture land to a market gardener for cropping. Karl Davis from Bayleys says part of the 17ha title at the front of the property has been used for horticulture for the past few years, which means the quality of the land could generate income if it is bought separately as a lifestyle block. Adjoining that title is the dairy unit with two more titles,

spreading over 118ha with all the farm infrastructure plus the main four-bedroom house that has been recently renovated. Quality races with a loop through the central part of the farm lead to the 42-aside herringbone dairy, which is close to the feed pad that has capacity for 400 cows. Effluent feeds into a clay-lined pond built two years ago to regional council standards. To the rear of the property with additional access from Martin Road is the 125ha drystock title

with a three-bedroom brick home on an elevated site. Davis says that title is more suited for drystock and combined with the dairy unit provides the scale for a self-contained operation. “It’s got awesome scale, whether it’s someone who wants that scale or someone who wants the dairy unit itself. “If you wanted to simplify things you would have a massive feed pad.” The farm has a good fertiliser history with chicken manure and

an ammo sulphur mix to build up good fertility in the Waerenga clay loam soils. Location is a big factor for the property, with the Waerenga School just a kilometre down the road, Te Kauwhata township 15km away, 63km to Hamilton and 88km to central Auckland. Tenders for the farm close on October 25.

Ripe for cultivation ROLLING Downs Station near Dannevirke covers 1738ha that provides three different options for buyers, with each block containing easy finishing contour and good infrastructure to provide standalone, productive units. The three options include the entire 1738ha station with 160 paddocks, the 566ha Tunakore block with 50 paddocks or an 1172ha block with 110 paddocks.

A high-performance Romney ewe flock has been the basis for the lamb-production unit that finished 5800 lambs before Christmas last year to average 17.1kg carcase weight and $123. Depending on the season the station has bought between 1500 and 2000 trade lambs in January and February that are also finished to good weights. Alongside the sheep operation

the station calves about 220 cows and 72 R2 heifers. Another income stream will become available over the next few years because 71ha of the station is planted in pines aged between 20 and 24 years old. Tony Rasmussen from Bayleys describes the station as a beautifully-contoured property with good, sheltered country and a sizable area that can be cultivated.

About 250ha has been cultivated in the past four years for crop or new grass and he says there’s scope for a lot more land to be cultivated. “Tunakore has nice, sheltered country with potential to develop the easier contour and it would make a good standalone property while the 1172ha block has some of the best contour and infrastructure.” A feature of the station is the

The infrastructure on Rolling Downs includes four homesteads, three main sheep and cattle yards, three big woolsheds and numerous implement sheds.

5.5km all-weather central road that leads from the Te Uri Road homestead to the near-new covered sheep and cattle yards in the middle of the property. Rasmussen says it provides exceptional vehicle access and stock movement that enables stock to be trucked from the centre of the farm. “They get all the sheep into the middle of the farm and can take a truck and trailer right into it. “They’ve got covered sheep yards there on a concrete base as well as the cattle yards. “Then the lane carries on to the woolshed and yards near the manager’s house at Ngapaeruru Road.” The entire station boasts three large woolsheds with covered yards, three main sheep and cattle yards, several sets of satellite yards, four homesteads and numerous lockable workshop/ implement sheds. Tenders for the various options of land close on November 13. The station has an open day on October 17.

FARMERS WEEKLY – October 15, 2018

Fertility produces good stock

The farm has a balance of contour with more than 200ha of cultivable land flowing into undulating to medium hill country.

IN THE heart of the King Country the 552ha property Waikaka is known for its ability to produce good stock weights and its balance of contour is well suited to a variety of farming practices. Waikaka is 30km north of Taumarunui and Jamie Proude from New Zealand Real Estate says one of its key strengths is its balance of contour that consists of more than 200ha of cultivatable land that flows into undulating to medium hill country with steeper sidlings. The property runs a sheep and cattle breeding and finishing operation in conjunction with dairy heifer grazing and cattle trading. Production figures show lambs finished between 17kg and 18kg carcase weight. On the cattle side of the operation steers have usually been bought in during peak pasture growth and sold forward store or finished, depending on market and climate conditions. That policy has been transitioning to heifer grazing with R1 heifers grazed on the farm through to R2s that depart in May. Proude says the property’s success is also due to its comprehensive fertiliser history and strong, versatile soil types plus abundant natural water that supplies its gravity-fed reticulation scheme to troughs in most paddocks.

The result is a property that is suitable as a sizable dairy support unit or highly-productive breeding and finishing unit. Subdivision is another factor with 74 main paddocks well fenced with conventional and multi-wire electric fencing featuring a cyberwire feeding up the main track that ensures high voltage over a large part of the farm. Access around the farm is enhanced by a ring route and the main graveled lane runs from a road on one side of the property through to a road the other side. The entire farm is well tracked with good access to all areas from the road and connects the woolshed and cattle yards with satellite yards at the rear of the property. The four-stand woolshed and its covered yards have capacity for 2000 ewes and are part of a quality set of infrastructure on the farm that includes five hay sheds, a truck shed and implement shed. A spacious two-storey, fourbedroom home is tastefully decorated and sits in well maintained, landscaped grounds while a second home has three bedrooms and is in tidy condition. Tenders for Waikaka close on November 22.

The farm has been thoughfully subdivided for grazing and fodder production.

Hollow Rock a solid farm THE sweeping rural views near Martinborough to the Tararua Ranges are spectacular from Hollow Rock which has been faithfully farmed by the Hancox family for three generations. A great balance of contour on the 159ha property enables about 60% of it to be cultivated and most of that has been regrassed in the past five years. Medium hill and sidlings make up the remainder of the farm and add up to 152 effective hectares.

For the past decade the farm has been leased out and for much of that time used as dairy support where it wintered 450 cows and carried 140 yearling heifers. Each year it had one cut of silage and one cut of barley hay that yielded about 4.5t/ha. In the past year is has been used as an adjunct to a large-scale trading and finishing property, with the policy flexible depending on the market. The lease expires in March.

Blair Stevens from NZR says it is a beautiful little block that has been thoughtfully subdivided for grazing and fodder crop cultivation with a reliable water supply from a well liner. The water is pumped to a high point on the property before being gravity fed to troughs in all bar one paddock, with a reliable natural source in that one. “The farm lies very well and has beautiful views so there’s potential for future development there.

“It’s just an awesome place to be and because it has that finishing component it has a bit of flexibility.” Located at the road is an older two-stand woolshed and yards, plus a small cattle yard and loadout ramp. A well-metalled track leads to the middle of the farm where satellite sheep yards are situated as well as a two-bay hayshed and a 35t fertiliser bin. Red metal and gravel are available on the property.

The farm lies 9km southeast of Martinborough in an area sought after for viticulture and farming as well as lifestyle. Best known for its pinot noir and festivals, the area also has nearby Lake Ferry for leisure pursuits. Tenders for Hollow Rock close on November 14.

The 588ha station’s strong hill country has averaged 4250 stock units.

FARMERS WEEKLY – October 15, 2018

Water is reticulated to 18 paddocks with dams, springs and creeks feeding the others. In the last five years 31 dams have been added.

Sheep and beef country RIVERLEA Station near Wairoa is a picturesque property that has it all – a desirable climate, great contour and strong infrastructure to deliver premium results. The 588ha station’s strong hill country has averaged 4250 stock units in recent years and has historically carried more with the ability to finish stock to make it a productive farming enterprise. Its owners have recently converted to a cattle-only policy and dropped stock numbers to focus on offfarm opportunities. The five-year average shows

the results of a sheep and cattle operation with sheep scanning 168% and docking 124% while cattle achieve 91% calving and heifers 82%. James Bolton-Riley from Bayleys says years of proficient ownership building on a good base have resulted in a high standard of features such as access, water and infrastructure that combine with its natural aspect and shelter. A temperate climate with mild winters and a favourable spread of rain through the year averaging

1900mm provides early growing conditions while a good mix of aspect provides sheltered country throughout the farm to protect stock from predominant winds. Significant fencing has been completed in recent years and the farm has a high standard of subdivision with 60 main paddocks. An extensive reticulated water system pumps water from a spring-fed dam to an elevated tank at the airstrip before feeding troughs in 18 paddocks with dams, springs and creeks watering

others. In the past five years 31 dams have been added to the farm. Multiple sets of good satellite yards are ideally positioned across the farm including two sets of sheep yards and a set of cattle yards. Covered yards are attached to the three-stand woolshed and nearby are sound cattle yards with a load-out ramp. A 73ha bush block on the southeast boundary has proved a haven for deer and is an ideal recreational hunting spot for the keen hunter while an abundance

of Fallow and Red deer can be found across the station. Just 47km west is the Te Urewera National Park with the stunning Lake Waikaremoana for hunting, fishing and tramping while the coast is just 20 minutes drive to the east for superb fishing. Tenders for Riverlea Station close on October 31.

FARMERS WEEKLY – October 15, 2018 0800 85 25 80


Fertile farm suits many crops FERTILE soils on the plains near Lake Wairarapa are the basis for a 343ha highly-productive and intensive cropping and finishing operation. The property is blessed with very fertile alluvial silt soils built up over the centuries from the alluvial wash of the old Tauherenikau River plain. Most of the soil types are therefore naturally fertile and highly suited to intensive cropping. In recent years the main crop has been maize but it has successfully grown potatoes, barley, peas and wheat as well. Last season the maize grain crop yielded 2553 dry tonnes off 170ha equating to 15 dry tonnes a hectare. This spring 180ha will be planted in maize grain. The owner has subdivided the property according to its best cropping soils with small areas of gravel fans and ridges fenced into separate paddocks. An estimated 185ha is suitable for growing maize and is fenced into larger paddocks with the total effective area of the property estimated to be 320ha. On the livestock side of the business the policy has been to buy in Friesian weaner bulls in spring and sell them at the end of the following spring with the number depending on available nonfallowed pasture and markets. Trade lambs are bought in to fill gaps and top off the feed demand.

Stock graze on a mix of rye, clover and chicory. Metal lanes access most of the property and every paddock has access to water with troughs in most of the paddocks supplied from a shallow well near a clean creek. A buried mainline leads to laterals laid under fences to keep them out of the way of any cultivation. Location is a big factor for the property because of its land and fertility, which is why it is surrounded by intensive dairy, sheep and beef finishing as well as cropping. Plus it lies just 11km from Featherston and only a little further from Greytown and Martinborough. A spacious Lockwood home with five bedrooms and an office has bifold doors opening to a large patio and an in-ground, solar-heated swimming pool plus an asphalt tennis court. A fully-lined sleepout attached to the garage provides further accommodation. The main farm buildings include a nine-bay implement shed with an attached four-stand woolshed and workshop. Cattle yards near the centre of the property have a covered and concreted working area as well as cattle crush and load-out ramp. Tenders for the property close on November 28.

About 185ha is suitable for growing maize.

This property has also grown potatoes, barley, peas and wheat while running Friesian weaner bulls and trade lambs on a mix of rye, clover and chicory.
