The Australian National Field Days (ANFD) provides a unique opportunity for retailers, primary producers, the general public and government organisations to come together to share information in a hands-on forum.

With a strong reputation as the oldest annual agricultural exhibition in the country, the ANFD showcases quality exhibitors continuing the long-held commitment to Advancing Australian Agriculture.

The Australian National Field Days showcase new ideas, the latest technology and innovations in agriculture.

Since 1952, the field days have provided an informative, social and enjoyable day out for all who attend.

The 2019 Field Days is set to be a real investment in the future of agriculture according to ANFD Manager, Jayne West.

"The prime purpose of the ANFD continues to be to assist the agricultural industry," she said.

"This can be achieved by providing those involved with a great opportunity of gaining first-hand knowledge of the latest trends in agricultural equipment and technology."

"Participation by exhibitors and attendance by industry and other visitors is part of the collaborative investment in agriculture and the success of the event year after year.

"It's amazing how the Australian agriculture industry continues to pull together in good times and in bad to move forward.

"It's no wonder our industry represents one of the most advanced with the sophistication of Australia's agricultural land management continuing to increase and our farmers among the most self-sufficient in the world."

This year there will be a number of equipment and machinery demonstrations which are designed to help farmers improve productivity and efficiency.

The latest inventions will be on display at The Land Farm Machine of the Year competition and the best new products will feature in the Awards of Excellence.

There will also be ATV and 4WD demos.

Those interested in animals and stock can catch the NSW Workers Sheepdog Trials, sponsored by Dogpro, check out the Sheep and Cattle Activities Centre or the Horse Expo.

Students will be able to visit some comprehensive exhibits showcasing school options while those out of school wanting to learn more can look in on the government agriculture related agencies.

ANFD chairman Sam Connell said the field days are an important part of the greater community.

"The field days are part of the social and economic fabric of Central West NSW," he said.

"It's a major annual focus for farming families who continue to strive in agriculture."
