The Hokianga property is developed in a way to contain the most common kinds of livestock within the fencing system. At the moment 100 Cattle and around 350 goats are kept. The stock numbers can almost be doubled, if hay is fed out through winter, but we run the place without any additional food or hay. Most beef breeds do well in this country. We run Hereford crosses or Simmental crosses.
The place has been used in the past for dairy production but is not really suitable for milking cows. It would be ideal for goat farming, fibre or milking goats. It is an ideal natural surrounding for them, as they need the rocks to trim their hoofs in a natural way.
The fences, yards, races, and shearing shed were initially built for the purpose to farm fibre goats.
To farm dear or alpaca is not possible with the current infrastructure.
