DAIRY BUILDING AND CUBICLE SHED
The main farm building comprises an impressive umbrella building, specifically designed as a high quality milking unit, that requires personal inspection in order to be fully appreciated. The principal farm buildings were originally built in the 1980's and were extended in 2015, being within a steel portal frame building under a cement fibre roof. This building provides approx. 50,000 ft square of housing, being approx. 330' x 150' and includes approx. 384 cubicles, together with loose housing areas, various feed passages with self locking yokes to all feed barriers, a race and calving pens. The layout of the building has been designed for care and ease of dairy cow management and movement, to ensure a high level of productivity, and includes several bespoke design features, automatic scrapers, and windbreaks to one elevation. The system was designed for Robotic milking and 3 Merlin Robots installed in 2015 and are available by further negotiation if required. The older part of the building has fans installed to improve ventilation and there is a Farm Office.
Adjoining the main building is a DAIRY with 14000 litre milk tank with associated engine house etc.
There are automatic scrapers within the main building, together with a flush system leading to the above ground slurry store handling approx. 330,000 gallons and a further slurry lagoon situated in close proximity. We would estimate that there is slurry and dirty water storage in place for approx. 300 head of cattle for 5 months - subject to verification. Historically,the cows have been bedded down on a combination of mattresses, sawdust and sand, with reception pits, storage and pumps to the store and lagoon. Slurry from the old buildings goes into the above ground storage.
