A Farmer is Enclosing two different breeds of Animals

A farmer needs to enclose two different breads of animals in a rectangular area. The two breads are separated by a fence. One of the lengths are not needed because the field borders a river. Therefore, the farmer will need 1 length section of fence and 3 width sections of fence. See picture below. The farmer has 227 meters of fence and wants the meadow to have as much area as possible. What should the dimensions of the meadow be?
