Something for all at Seymour Expo
THE Seymour Alternative Farming Expo will get under way on February 14, with organisers expecting more than 40,000 people over the three-day event.
Regarded as Australia’s premier alternative farming showcase, the expo offers visitors a snapshot of the latest in agricultural technology and the best in rural lifestyle.
This year’s event will also offer plenty of fun and entertainment for families, with plenty for them to see and do, taking a full day to see it all.
There are key elements to new technology, particularly in the area of machinery and implements, exemplified by the huge outdoor machinery ‘showroom’.
This year’s expo will have a focus on some of the more alternative breeds of cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and poultry.
Education and the free exchange of knowledge and ideas have been cornerstones of the expo since its inception over two decades ago.
Also running will be the Farm and Rural Lifestyle seminar program, the Seymour Agricultural and Pastoral Society’s practical workshops, and the GOTAFE building lecture program that will highlight new and innovative building techniques.
Foodies will be well looked after with the expo’s offering of fine local produce and wines as well as an outstanding selection of food to be found in no less than three food courts.
Mums with young children are catered for with child changing facilities on site and there are plenty of shady areas around the grounds where they can take respite from the sun and heat.
