Island Glen Dairies Ltd

Converted in 2008, Island Glen Dairies Ltd is 206 hectares milking 780 cows.

The farm is flat with Waimakariri stoney sandy loam and shallow sandy loam soil types and is fully irrigated.  Farm buildings include a 50 bail rotary built in 2008, a concrete platform, Nu Pulse Plant and a yard which can hold up to 600 cows.  Automatic cup removers were added to the shed in 2019.  There is also an eight bay calf shed which is plumbed so milk can be pumped directly from the dairy shed for feeding calves.

Staff accommodation consists of a 4 bedroom Manager's House, 1 x 3 bedroom house and 2 x 2 bedroom flats built in 2017.

Island Glen is managed by Liam Quinlan who joined Spectrum Group in June 2021.  There are 3 permanent staff working on the farm.

The farm is located 50kms south of Ashburton and approx 30kms from Geraldine and Temuka.
