Tuesday 7 December 2004
A Horsham Downs dairy farm has sold for a record $70,000 a hectare.
By The LandlordThe 118ha property near Hamilton's northern boundary was sold for $8.25 million to a Waikato farming family looking to subdivide.
The sale blitzed the last Waikato record, thought to be around $42,000 a hectare, for a 157ha Tatua farm sold last year.

The offer was one of four for the property since July after Waikato District Council agreed to progressively turn over 1800ha of land to Hamilton for northern growth.
