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 broad acre event and one of the biggest displays of farming machinery in Australia with practically every brand of large farming and broad acre 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 their 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 regions 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 the impressive entries as part of the annual Victorian Farm Sculpture competition and we were pleased to see some of our 2016 entries taking home prizes at the National Farm Sculpture awards last year in NSW. 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 3 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.
