See more at Sey­mour’s farm­ing expo

Mansfield Courier - - Rural -

THE an­i­mals are groomed, the en­ter­tain­ers are ready and the gates are about to open for the 28th Sey­mour Al­ter­na­tive Farm­ing Expo.

Held at Sey­mour’s Kings Park from Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 14 to Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 16, event man­ager Jamie Gilbert said there would be more than 400 ex­hibitors for 2020.

“Come and ex­plore the lat­est tech­nol­ogy, prac­tices and trends in small and back­yard farm­ing, visit the an­i­mals and en­joy the mar­ket-style shopping, food and en­ter­tain­ment,” Mr Gilbert said.

A stal­wart of the farm­ing cal­en­dar, the expo puts the spotlight on mod­ern farm­ing meth­ods, ag-tech so­lu­tions and sus­tain­abil­ity.

“Ev­ery year ex­hibitors show­case the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments, ma­chin­ery and equip­ment in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try for small acreage farm­ing,” Mr Gilbert said.

“Over the years the event has grown to in­cor­po­rate sus­tain­abil­ity, in­clud­ing off-the­grid, re­new­able re­sources and low-im­pact liv­ing.

“There is also an op­por­tu­nity to get up close and per­sonal with unique live­stock breeds, learn tips on rais­ing un­usual pad­dock pals and get up-to-date on an­i­mal health and farm di­ver­sity ideas in the Small Farms

Learn­ing Hub.”

Mr Gilbert said the expo was also a great fam­ily fun day out, with plenty of star-stud­ded en­ter­tain­ment for all ages.

“This year we’ve added the All 4 FMX quad bike demos to the huge en­ter­tain­ment line-up, while the Flip­ping Disc Dogs are back fresh from the Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent stage,” he said.

An es­ti­mated 22,000 vis­i­tors are ex­pected across the three days.
