The New Zealand Agri­cul­tural Fiel­d­ays golden an­niver­sary event last week had tens of thou­sands of peo­ple through the gates at Mys­tery Creek over four days to check out the more than 1000 ex­hibitors across 16ha.

The open­ing cer­e­mony was Fiel­d­ays’ 50th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion with the mile­stone event shared with peo­ple who have been in­volved from the be­gin­ning and those with special ties to Fiel­d­ays and its his­tory.

New Zealand Na­tional Fiel­d­ays So­ci­ety (NZNFS) CEO Peter Na­tion spoke at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the changes the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try has seen over the past 50 years and in­tro­duced this year’s theme of the fu­ture of farm­ing.
