Riverlands is a 640ha farm divided between 519ha of milking area and 92ha dryland. The property is managed by a farm manager and 8 permanent team members.

  • A spray irrigated dairy farm (predominantly pivots) located on the northern terraces of the Rakaia River at Te Pirita.
  • The farm has two separate dairy sheds – a 54 bale rotary with meal feeding and a 44 bale herringbone.
  • Includes five modern homes to accommodate the team.
  • Riverland is in its seventh year of production and large areas of the farm have been devoted to kale growing in the past three years as part of a regrassing strategy. This has decreased per ha production but will aid performance in the future.
  • In the 2015/16 season, 1591 cows produced 383 kgMS per cow.
