Welcome to the 57th annual Wimmera Machinery Field Days.

Welcome to the 57th Annual Wimmera Machinery Field Days (WMFD).  The WMFD Committee and staff extend their warmest welcome to our exhibitors and patrons and hope you have a fantastic and productive time at this year’s Field Days.  The WMFD provides a world-class event to the communities of Western Victoria and we are proud to be able to provide an opportunity to our exhibitors to show case the latest and greatest that the world’s manufacturers have to offer.  Likewise, our patrons have the chance to conduct business and learn new technologies and avenues of growth in the industry, whilst enjoying a relaxed day and friendly environment that the Field Days are known for.

 The organising committee and staff of the WMFD are a passionate and dedicated group.  Members work tirelessly to overcome obstacles and challenges to bring our patrons and exhibitors together for an event that epitomises agriculture. Agriculture continues to be an industry at the forefront of innovation.  It is always looking for new inventions and ideas that can be incorporated to assist with efficiencies and better practices.  The WMFD has been an excellent platform to achieve this for the last 57 years.

We consider all our exhibitors and sponsors to be vital to our event and it’s with great appreciation that we recognise all they have contributed to the successful running of the WMFD.  Our exhibitors are essential to our industry, always looking for an edge on the competition to provide customers with the results they want.  In addition they promote a fantastic atmosphere for our patrons and a great social day out.

We would like to thank all our volunteer and community groups whose participation and hard work help to make the Field Days a success.  Once again I would like to welcome you all to the 57th Annual WMFD.  I hope your time with us provides you with the ideas, skills, knowledge and tools to benefit your business, community and your lifestyle.
