This top quality holding in Co Limerick looks certain to tempt buyers interested in dairy expansion back into the auction rooms.
Located at Ballingaddy North near Kilmallock in Co Limerick, the 78ac, non-residential, working dairy farm (pictured above) comes to auction with a guide price of €10,000/ac.
Located 2km from Kilmallock, the property is currently home to a milking dairy herd belonging to farmer John Clery who is retiring from the business.
The holding is all in one block and comes with road frontage on to two roads.
It is serviced by two internal roadways and the fields are divided by natural hedgerow and electric fences.
Facilities include a 10-unit milking parlour and cubicle accommodation for 60 cows in a building with a central feeding passage and fitted with an automatic scraping system. There are also calving pens and storage.
Richard Ryan of selling agents GVM Kilmallock says the land is in great heart having been well minded and reseeded in recent years.
The farm comes with a basic payment of €7,260 and will be sold at auction at Bulgaden Castle Kilmallock at 3pm on Friday, May 8.
