AgLife - - News - MAN­AGER’S MES­SAGE Mur­ray Wil­son Man­ager Wim­mera Machin­ery Field Days

This year the Wim­mera Machin­ery Field Days wel­comes Aus­tralia’s ma­jor agri­cul­tural machin­ery deal­ers and lead­ing agribusi­ness com­pa­nies to the re­gion.

We proudly claim to host Vic­to­ria’s premier broad­acre event and one of the big­gest dis­plays of farm­ing machin­ery in Aus­tralia, with prac­ti­cally ev­ery brand of large farm­ing and broad­acre agri­cul­tural ma­chine or prod­uct cur­rently on the mar­ket.

There is no doubt­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of the Wim­mera Machin­ery Field Days and the role this in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised ma­jor event plays in the strength of agri­cul­ture in this re­gion.

Some of our lo­cal machin­ery deal­ers have dou­bled the size of their sites this year, cre­at­ing some huge spa­ces, so ex­pect to see some very im­pres­sive dis­plays of the big­gest ma­chines on the mar­ket.

More im­por­tantly the event at­tracts ma­jor agri­cul­tural com­pa­nies and deal­ers, all com­ing here know­ing that the field days acts as the first pos­i­tive step to the next year of ru­ral busi­ness for our re­gion’s pri­mary pro­duc­ers

The mid­dle day of the field days is our tra­di­tional fam­ily day, and fol­low­ing the suc­cess of this re­vamped fea­ture day last year, we are pleased to of­fer fam­ily-friendly at­trac­tions and pop­u­lar con­certs and shows in our au­di­to­rium.

We con­sider it a great chance to in­tro­duce the next gen­er­a­tion of field days pa­trons to our event, and we ex­pect a lot of new faces again mak­ing the most of our pop­u­lar field days fam­ily day

The field days also means three days of so­cial­is­ing, re­lax­ing and en­joy­ing a break with friends and fam­ily.

On show will be im­pres­sive en­tries as part of the an­nual Vic­to­rian Farm Sculp­ture Com­pe­ti­tion.

We were pleased to see some of our 2016 en­tries tak­ing home prizes at the Na­tional Farm Sculp­ture awards last year in New South Wales.

A key at­trac­tion this year will be the re­turn of the stunt rid­ers from Fac­tory FMX Mo­tocross who will be leap­ing over some huge O’Con­nors trac­tors and machin­ery and putting on a great show three times a day.

It is im­por­tant to recog­nise the field days spon­sors and sup­port­ers, re­gional con­trac­tors and sup­pli­ers, and most im­por­tantly the lo­cal com­mu­nity groups, schools, ser­vice and sport­ing clubs who all help bring this ma­jor event to life. We thank them for their sup­port and par­tic­i­pa­tion.

En­joy the 55th an­nual field days and be sure to see and ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery­thing we have to of­fer.
