Planning is on track for the 70th anniversary South Island Agricultural Field Days (SIAFD) in March next year.

Covid-19 is creating some uncertainty, but chairwoman Michaela McLeod said the event, held at Kirwee, near Christchurch, was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the industry which was considered the backbone for New Zealand’s recovery.

Contingencies were being considered to manage any Covid-19 restrictions, but Ms McLeod said the organising committee was keen to mark the 70th anniversary in style.

The field days was renowned for its live demonstrations, and would increase the size of its demonstration area with the intention of showcasing both large and small machinery, said committee member Andrew Stewart, who farmed at Waikuku, north of Woodend.
