Current Situation

Waikura Joint Stations strategic goals continue to focus on the long-term aim of providing a modern dry stock farming business that has:

  • Grown and developed a dedicated team of people that deliver a high performing dry stock farming operation in a challenging remote location
  • Industry leading environmental principles and associated outcomes
  • A core focus on breeding and finishing all stock across the various stations
  • Developed a 60/40 ratio of Cattle and Sheep based on high-quality stock that are market ready
  • Maintained farm supporting infrastructure to industry leading standards utilizing modern technology where possible
Farming has always been the core business of the Waikura Valley and with the now combined operation of Te Kumi, Pakira, Waikura, Rewetu and Mohau Stations improvements are set to be made to further complement this history and enhance the whole operation based on modern farming techniques.
2020 will be the first year that sets the future direction with a move to a combined breeding and finishing focus across all stations rather than a traditional separate store stock focus across the stations. The steeper territories such as Mohau and Rewetu will continue to breed stock and the flatter and lower areas Waikura, Pakira, and Te Kumi will focus on finishing the animals to provide a high-quality product for market.
Our team have made significant improvements in recent years to what has traditionally been low priority infrastructure across the stations. This has resulted in significant investment in infrastructure including Fencing, Wool sheds, Housing, Internal tracks and roading and operational equipment. Looking forward, further infrastructure enhancements will be made with Fencing, Pasture improvements and Stock quality a key focus.
