Take some time to see rural New Zealand at work. An opportunity for a local, retired farmer to show you around the sale yards in action. a real treat. Anyone with a rural interest should take the time to check out the sale yards in action

Appeals to people with agricultural interests and also people who enjoy seeing something really different to the normal guided tour. The auctioneers perform well on sale days and it's a real operational stock sale - the largest saleyard in NZ well worth visiting

We had Canadian visitors staying and decided to take them on a Saleyards Tour, something we had not done ourselves. What a surprise we all loved it, it was so entertaining and interesting. Would really recommend this tour.

Observe close up the auction of thousands of sheep and cattle, right in the middle of Feilding. Experience the smells, the noise, see all the handsome farmers and stock agents - not to mention the handsome sheep and cattle as well!
