A Biennial Must See!
The Southern Field Days – which are held at Waimumu, near Gore – began in 1981 as a local agricultural event.
Over the years, it has grown into one of the country’s largest rural showcases.
The event runs every alternative year, with the South Island Field Days at Kirwee held in the years Waimumu is not.
The Southern Field Days typically features a range of agricultural machinery, equipment demonstrations, livestock displays and seminars. It serves as a platform for farmers and rural businesses around the region – and wider South Island – to connect, share knowledge, stay updated on the latest innovations in the agricultural sector.
The Southern Field Days continue to play a significant role in promoting agriculture and fostering community ties in the South Island and will be again held this year at Waimumu from February 14 to 16.
