What to Expect
The introduction of the tractor pull remains our biggest and most popular major attraction,
This will continue in 2017, with planning underway for mowers and utes to be added to the mix for pull area.
Our inventor’s competition is an important platform for new products to be previewed.
Feedback from exhibitors - some who have been involved with the event for more than a decade and other newcomers - is overwhelming in support, with anecdotal stories of sell out performances at the event and strong after-sales. This event has a good reputation for attracting quality customers and buyers in the gates. Our exhibitors consistently tell us that they have sold more stock onsite than many other field days they attend. The after sales continue often up to two years after the event.
The future farmers and innovation section will be ramped up in 2017 with new technology being introduced to this attraction.
