THE biggest dairy in WA has been taken off the market.

Lactanz Dairy was put up for sale late last year and lack of buying interest saw the asking price slashed by 10 per cent in April.

Continued lack of interest has forced the owners to take the property off the market until 2015.

Elders agent Noel Jones said due to the existing Brownes milk contracts, the property would come off the market until those milk contracts expired.

Contracts between Lactanz and Brownes Dairy mean the processor has control of the milk supply for the next five years, which complicated the sale.

"The owners would have liked to have moved on but as the contracts have complicated things it just hasn't happened," Mr Jones said.

Lactanz Dairies consists of four farms in Scott River and supports the largest combined dairy herd in WA with more than 4000 milking cows.

It is also the largest single milk supplier to Brownes.

The four properties currently operate under individual share-milking arrangements.

Initially Rosmerta Pty Ltd was offering the Lactanz Dairies, and improvements, for a price of $30 million, which was reduced to $27m in April.
