Align Emilius is a 180 effective hectare dairy farm is situated on Maroanan Ealing Road in Mid Canterbury. This property is proudly farmed by Sam Mallard and his newly appointed team members whom started on 1 June 2015.

700 cows are milked through a 60 Bale Rotary Cow shed with automatic cup removers and in shed meal feeding. Emilius was part of the original Align Jacawanda dairy farm and was divided off into its own stand alone unit in 2014. After the construction of the cowshed and two new houses and complimentary calf sheds, new water system, fencing and re-pivoting the farm started milking midway through last season. A substantial re-grassing programme was completed in the 2014/15 season.

Water to the centre pivot irrigators are provided by Mayfield Hinds Irrigation Scheme and associated groundwater. A 60,000 cubic metre irrigation pond is situated on the property to support the farms water management. This is the first season that Emilius will be farmed under its new format and Aligns farm management system.
