Murray Wilson WMFD Manager

This year the Wimmera Machinery Field Days welcomes Australia’s major agricultural machinery dealers and leading agribusiness companies to the region.

Wimmera Field Days looks to change for 2020.

Change is important to events especially significant events such as the Wimmera Machinery Field Days which has been held annually for the last 57 years. Change is important to create a sense of something new, something different and a feeling of excitement and expectation for patrons and exhibitors alike. Progress is impossible without change. With this concept of change in mind the WMFD is initiating the first ever Field Days Dealers Machinery and Equipment Auction for 2020. We believe this is a first for Ag Field Days in Australia. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and the support from a number of exhibitors to contribute machinery and equipment to the auction has been well received. We hope the auction will create another avenue for exhibitors to make new contacts whilst at the same time possibly move on surplus stock. Everyone loves an auction and we expect it to be a popular initiative for the event with some long term potential During the Twilight Ag Expo this year we are excited to hold the first ever Footy Club Tractor Pull which should bring in the crowds and provide some fun and friendly rivalry for all the competing teams. Along with this we will feature music and entertainment, thrilling Freestyle Quad bike stunt shows and plenty of choices for a gourmet dinner. The new Ag Futures Pavilion in partnership with Partners in Ag and Nutrien Ag Solutions will see an impressive line up of leading industry experts and we feel this new initiative will bring a sought after ‘learning outcome’ for patrons where they can make some real inroads in planning for the future of their ag business. The Wimmera Machinery Field Days is a not for profit community based organisation led by a dedicated executive team and a volunteer committee who have been working throughout the year to plan for this large scale event and present the site at its best. Having visited most major Field Days in Australia there is no doubt that we consider this is Victoria’s premier broadacre farming focussed event and one of the more impressive displays of agriculture machinery in Australia. We are pleased to be able to showcase the region at its finest here at the Wimmera Events Centre in Longerenong. A lot has changed since last year and we hope the change and new ideas will ensure you enjoy the 58th annual Wimmera Machinery Field Days.
