About SIDE

The South Island Dairy Event (SIDE) was established in 1998 to provide a forum for those involved in the South Island dairy industry to evaluate and apply knowledge, skills and technology to their business. The key drivers of SIDE are South Island Dairy Farmers. The focus and delivery of all SIDE events is guided by farmer needs and on-going evaluation.

SIDE has grown to become New Zealand’s premier dairy conference and the largest event of its type in the country. SIDE attendees tend to be the more progressive, successful and influential farmers.

The June 2024 conference is at Lincoln University, Lincoln on Monday 24th, Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th of June 2024.
