WINTER CROP PADDOCKS
COMPACTED / PUGGED?
WE USE A CULTILIFT SOIL LOOSENER,
HE-VA DISC ROLLER AND AIRSEEDER
The Cultilift loosens and aerates the soil right
through the profile allowing quicker drying and
cultivation of winter paddocks.
Using our 5 Metre He-Va Disc Roller which
includes an Airseeder we can cultivate and
sow anything from Peas to Brassicas. We have
been using He-Va equipment for over 8 years
and found the results very pleasing both in
yields and increased soil health by keeping the
organic material in the top of the profile.

more than in the year to August
The median price per hectare
for all farms sold in the three

$17,955, an 18.5 per cent
increase on the $15,148 recorded

Half the regions recorded
increases in sales volumes for
the three months ended August
2012 compared with last year.
Canterbury recorded the largest
increase in sales (+21 sales), fol-
lowed by Auckland (+17 sales)
and Nelson (+14 sales). South-
land recorded nine fewer sales
followed by Otago (-8 sales) and
Taranaki (-4 sales).
The early spring, with strong
pasture growth and good early
production is providing a plat-
form for farm sales during
spring, says REINZ rural mar-
ket spokesman Brian Peacocke.
Despite the reduction in the
dairy payout, the market is see-
ing solid inquiry for dairy farms,
and continued interest in sheep
and beef properties driven by
expectations of a recovery in
While there is still uncer-
tainty in the rural sector gener-
ally, driven by offshore factors
and exchange rates, the good
growing conditions and con-
tinued low interest rates augur
well for a good farm sales mar-
ket during the next quarter, he

for the largest number of sales,
with 50 per cent share. Finish-
ing properties accounted for 17.6
per cent, horticulture properties
12.9 per cent and dairy proper-
ties 6.6 per cent. These four

the three months ended August
