About Us

On behalf of the New Zealand Dairy Event’s Management Committee in conjunction with Manawatu & West Coast Agricultural & Pastoral Association, we challenge all breed enthusiasts to participate in this prestigious national dairy event. 

A considerable amount of work has been carried out by the committee to ensure those attending will be well catered for and we know you will end up having a memorable and enjoyable time. 

The magnificent Manfeild Agri-Centre facilities are second to none and we believe are the best in the Southern Hemisphere, if not the world for exhibiting cattle. This is no ordinary show - make no mistake about that!! With amazing facilities, it attracts the very best cattle from all around New Zealand. 

For our tenth anniversary event we have once again a very challenging programme with some new features that will take 2018's event to an even higher level.

We have continued with the major focus being on the farming youth of our country. As we all know, they are our future. We have agreed with a request from the Breed Societies to include all the youth cattle entries into their individual Breed Sections as well as the All Breeds classes. The challenge we now have is to also get all the dairy farming fraternity to make a concerted effort and get their youth involved. 

Another one of the features will again be the Semex Summer Sensational Sale. If you have an animal for this please do not hesitate to contact us

Manfeild Park is ideally situated for both islands to attend. Manfeild is only 10 minutes from Palmerston North, regarded as the hub of New Zealand
