The Australian National Field Days (ANFD) are celebrating 66 years this year since hosting their first ever Field Day in 1952, where it was only a one day event.
“We are committed to advancing Australian agriculture and we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to do that, whether that be through utilising new technology and social media, or simply moving part of our event to a weekend so people who work off-farm
can attend,” said Administration Manager Jayne West.
A big key to this year’s event is ensuring that there is something on offer for the whole family. There will be entertainment for everyone with music playing throughout the day from Mickey Pye, Casey McFarlane and The Hewitt’s. There will also be a jumping castle, camel
rides and a high adrenaline action show from Flair Action Riders.
This year’s feature exhibit is one to be enjoyed by all, the Australian Stock Horse Society. They will be conducting talks throughout
the three day field day about their importance to agriculture and will inform the public about products and services. “Livestock and grazing are very important here and we are on the fringe of a very large cropping area, there’s a lot of horticulture in the region with apples and cherries and viticulture is another area rapidly growing,” said Jayne.
Don’t forget to enter our competition to go into the draw to win a double pass to the ANFD.
