EVER-expanding Central West dairy Moxey Farms has added another farm to its holdings.
The fully-integrated dairy operation has purchased “North Logan”, a 1150 hectare property at Gooloogong, 30 kilometres south of the operation’s base.
The purchase follows Moxey’s purchase of Bruem Dairy in February. In this move the Moxeys gained 500 cows and 327ha of mostly irrigated country 30km to the north of its main dairy.
Pasture grown at “North Logan” will aid the expansion of the Bruem Dairy as it grows out to 1000 milking cows in the next year.
Its total land holdings now span 2100ha.
While still operated by the Moxey family, the dairy was acquired in 2015 by the Australian Fresh Milk Holdings consortium, which includes large-scale Sydney basin farmers, the Perich family at Leppington Pastoral Company.
Since the acquisition Moxey’s has expanded from 3700 milking cows to 5500 as part of a $40 million growth program.
Investing in additional greenfield production sites is all part of its plan to become a significant player in the Australian dairy industry.
