SIDE Mission

"Empowering dairy industry people to create and manage change in the South Island."

SIDE is a charitable organisation led by a Governance group of trustees, the conference is run each year alternating between Southland and Canterbury generally. Each year an event committee is formed and a chairperson is nominated from the Governance Group of trustees. SIDE is a 2 day conference for farmers led by farmers.

The number of dairy farm owners, share milkers, contract milkers, herd managers and farm staff has increased rapidly in the South Island; these farmers and their needs are the key drivers of SIDE.
