Countdown to SIAFD 2021

March 24-26, 2021

Welcome to South Island Agricultural Field Days

March 24-26 2021, Kirwee


We are one of the oldest and largest agricultural events in the South Island; going back 70 years, it focuses on opportunities to view machines in their working state and reinforcing the relationship between farmers, service providers, scientists and technical experts.

$20 for adults, Under 18s are free.

No dogs (except Guide Dogs).

It is $20 online and at the gate, but the advantage of online is no queues!

Any tickets bought online will be fully refunded if the event is cancelled due to COVID 19.

The main aim of the South Island Agricultural Field Days (SIAFD) is to give farmers and others in the rural sector the opportunity to see the latest in agricultural machinery and services that are available on the market, particularly home grown products.
