Fieldays online not smooth sailing

Moving Fieldays online has not been smooth sailing.

The website officially opened yesterday, replacing the usual Fieldays event at Mystery Creek in Hamilton, a main feature on the farming calendar.

A rush of online activity caused the website to crash less than two hours after it was launched and later on its Facebook page, organisers warned of a scam.

Peter Nation is Fieldays' chief executive.
