The winding up of Robert McVitty's farming enterprises has hit a snag, with the Manawatu farmer not co-operating with liquidators.

McVitty Properties Ltd, which Mr McVitty directed, is in receivership and liquidation.

But no progress has been made on the liquidation of the company, according to the latest liquidators' report from Grant Thornton.

No property had been sold and liquidators were still looking over financial records.

However, they had sent a questionnaire to McVitty about the company, and he was required to fill it in and return it.

"To date we have not received a response," the report, signed off by David Ruscoe, says.

When placed into receivership, the company owed more than $43 million to the Bank of New Zealand.

Patoka Dairies, also directed by McVitty, is also in receivership.
