Limestone Downs is a 2500ha effective coastal property south of Port Waikato running sheep and beef. Dairy conversion has seen 425ha of predominately coastal flats transitioned to dairy which will support up to 1200 cows.
AgFirst Engineering followed the project from conception to completion, providing onsite expertise throughout the project.
The waste water treatment system is designed so that all waste water from the cowshed, yard areas, feed pad and silage storage bins are gravity fed into the solids removal bunker and effluent storage pond. Waste water is then applied to land using a low application system to ensure surface ponding of waste water does not occur.
