There’s more at El­more than ever be­fore

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - ELMORE FIELD DAYS -

EACH year the or­gan­is­ers of El­more Field Days of­fer pa­trons some­thing new to the three-day event and this year’s ex­cit­ing new ad­di­tion is the live mu­sic on site with three dif­fer­ent per­form­ers on each day.

Start­ing on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 4 and run­ning through to Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 6, with gates open­ing at 8.30am and clos­ing at 5.30pm each day, vis­i­tors to the 2016 event will be treated to as many as 700 stalls fea­tur­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and handy gad­gets.

The field days show­case some of the lat­est ma­chin­ery, in­no­va­tion and tech­niques used in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try.

The pop­u­lar Ag Art Wear Com­pe­ti­tion is back for its 16th year, with de­sign­ers bat­tling it out for the best gar­ment from ma­te­ri­als found on the farm or land.

Men­tal health will be a cen­tral fo­cus this year with many guest speak­ers and ac­tiv­i­ties over the three days.

Ja­son McCart­ney will be at­tend­ing the El­more Field Days as this year’s guest speaker.

Mr McCart­ney be­came a na­tional hero in the wake of the Bali Bomb­ings in 2002.

A young Aus­tralian with an ex­cep­tional tal­ent for Aus­tralian Rules foot­ball, he was quickly placed into the hearts and minds of all through his coura­geous fight-back from the hor­ri­ble burns he suf­fered in Bali.

This year there will be an Eques­trian Show­case en­com­pass­ing demon­stra­tions as well as many ex­hibitors within the equine in­dus­try.

The shear­ing shed will be packed full of demon­stra­tions as well as guest speak­ers.

There is more to see and do this year in­side the Gen­eral In­ter­est Pav­il­ion, host­ing many new ex­hibitors.

The Agribusi­ness Pav­il­ion will be packed, host­ing more than 100 ex­hibitors.

Camel Milk Vic­to­ria will be re­turn­ing again af­ter be­ing such a hit last year with their soap, body but­ters and laun­dry de­ter­gents.

For those who love pho­tog­ra­phy there will be a pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion with many prizes on of­fer and the op­por­tu­nity to have pho­tos placed in the 2017 El­more Field Days cal­en­dar.
