Colosseum is a 274ha farm run by a manager and three permanent team members.

  • Located at Te Pirita on the Canterbury Plains, 26km from Dunsandel, Colosseum is a square-shaped dairy unit.
  • The property has a centrally-located 50 bale rotary cowshed, one centre pivot irrigator and very well designed internal subdivision, providing easy stock management.
  • Three good quality homes are available for the farm team.
  • Colosseum farms a herd of cows specifically chosen to produce A2 milk. This milk is sold on contract to Synlait milk as a specialist ingredient for infant formula.
  • In the 2015/16 season, the farm milked 882 cows with a production of 364 kgMS per cow.
  • This season Colosseum will milk 930 A2 heifers.
