Mid-season dairy farm settlements


December 08 2014


It’s now not uncommon for dairy farm settlements to occur mid-season. If you’re negotiating to buy or sell a dairy farm mid-season it‘s important that consideration is given to the dividend entitlement.

There are three options to consider:

  1. The dividend is included in the purchase price and is the purchaser’s entitlement
  2. The dividend is apportioned based on the contribution to production for the season, or
  3. The dividend is apportioned between the vendor and purchaser based on the number of days each party owns the property for the season.

Please keep these considerations in mind.
