While the teens hang out for their music festivals, the farmers are already penciling the long-awaited Fodder Festival into their busy calendars.
On March 17 the Fodder Festival will be returning to the Elmore Events Centre after a three-year hiatus.
The 7 am to 4 pm event will be a baling bonanza, with field machinery demonstrations, static machinery displays and more business representatives than you can shake a stick at.
Australian Fodder Industry Association chief executive Paula Fitzgerald said the Fodder Festival was targeted at all sectors — from growers and contractors, to traders and end-users.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to check out machinery in action in the paddock and to get up-to-date information on new products and technologies available,” Ms Fitzgerald said.
“We are looking forward to a return to routine with this festival set to be a regular biennial event.”
The theme for the upcoming event is ‘The Future of Big Square Baling’ and will feature the latest range of square balers on the market leading into the 2021 hay season.
In the lead-up to the festival registrants will have the opportunity to virtually observe crop preparations, cutting and raking.
The 2021 Fodder Festival is presented by AFIA in partnership with the Elmore Field Days Committee.
