The iconic three-day event attracts about 20,000 visitors through the gates every year to inspect over $200 million worth of machinery, equipment and materials.

Held in the Wimmera region well known for its grain and sheep industries, the field days provides a platform for farmers and agricultural industry experts to share ideas, insights and knowledge on the farming sector.

It will once again be hosted at its purpose-built site at the Wimmera Events Centre at Longerenong near Horsham in western Victoria.

In addition to showcasing a wide range of new machinery, the event also offers something for everyone in the family to enjoy; including cooking demos for the cooks in the family; animal farm for the kids; a vintage ‘Tractorcade’ tractor parade for the retro machinery lovers and Factory FMX Freestyle Motorcross shows for the adrenaline junkies.

Every year, the field day committee presents several product and site awards to exhibitors to encourage participation as well as acknowledge innovation in the agricultural industry.
