Align Jacawanda

Align Jacawanda

Align Jacawanda is nestled between Boltons and Ealing Monalto Road, near Ealing in Mid Canterbury and is proudly farmed by Mark Frear and partner Kate Gallagher and their newly appointed team members whom started on 1 June 2015.

This 248 effective hectare farm milks 960 cows through an 80 Bale Rotary Cow shed with automatic cup removers and in shed meal feeding. In 2014 Align purchased a larger parcel of land and divided it into two adjoining dairy units, namely Align Jacawanda and Align Emilius.

In the 2014/15 season Align Jacawanda continued to operate as a dairy unit milking 1500 cows, while the farm was completely reformatted into two units. This development including re-fencing, re-pivoting, re-laning and re-grassing the property while continuing day to day farming activities.

This was a logistically challenging process, but Align has now delivered two “sweet spot” farms that have been developed to achieve their potential. This is the first season that Align Jacawanda will be farmed under its new improved format and under the full influence of the Align management system.

Align Jacawanda new design has made substantial improvements to the operational efficiency and productive capacity of the property. Mark Frear an experienced farm practitioner is looking forward to implementing initiatives that will allow the farm to reach its full potential.
