Fieldays New Zealand

The New Zealand National Agricultural Fieldays was born through the determination and vision of a small group of individuals in 1968, after Nuffield Scholar John Kneebone wrote to the Waikato Times promoting the idea of a Town and Country show for farmers complimenting the then successful 'Ruakura Week'. The idea pitched was to create an event whereby farmers could meet and view products and services, innovation in farm machinery creating the concept for the first Fieldays event and the inception of the NZ National Fieldays Society.
