About South Island Agricultural Field Days

SIAFD 2017

Aims of the South Island Agricultural Field Days.

  1. To provide a venue where machinery and other services can be demonstrated to the rural community.
  2. To provide a vehicle for senior YFC members of the Christchurch District to acquire, in a practical way, organisational and business skills.

Objectives of the South Island Agricultural Field Days.

  1. To organise a professional exhibition that is an interface between the agricultural service industry and its clients.
  2. To provide satisfaction to both parties in order to get return business.

The SIAFD is a story of success. It has been the result of hard work by young farmers since 1951. About 175 members have served on the organising committee and several hundred others have worked during the field days providing the hands on approach needed to prepare for and run successful events.

The co-operation of the machinery firms has been vital to the success as has the response from landowners when asked to supply a site.

The South Island Agricultural Field Day (SIAFD) is a non-profit organisation and the committee organises an exhibition for the rural community every second year.
