Some­thing for all at Sey­mour Expo

Mansfield Courier - - WHAT’S ON -

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.
