Following the long drought period, extensive fires, Coronavirus and floods, the farming community now appears to be the one showing how a resilient attitude can help overcome times of great stress and hardship.
The need to keep supplies available for all Australians has helped keep many businesses open to service the needs of the farmer through a very difficult year.
Since good rains have fallen across most parts of the country, Eastern Spreaders based at Kerang in Northern Victoria, have seen an upsurge in demand for its range of spreading and feeding equipment.
Eastern Spreaders was looking forward to returning to the field day circuit with its products, and enjoying the interaction with customers who would have been able to get a good look at the range on site.
Eastern Spreaders is the eastern states distributors for Marshall Multispread fertiliser spreaders, now in the 40th year of production.
"Originally designed for gypsum spreading, the Marshall Multispread has developed to be a multi-purpose machine to suit all types of granular product and seeds as well as lime, manure, and compost," an Eastern Spreaders spokesman said.

"The Marshall Multispread range now includes models from 2.5 tonne to 16 tonne capacities.
"It is available with many options including the i4M Variable Rate Controller system and weighing systems which can also be retrofitted to older machines."
Eastern Spreaders has been the Australian distributor for NDECo Vertical Feedmixers since 2000.
"The machines have been well proven both in dairy and feedlot situations," the spokesman said.
"Built in Canada, the NDECo feed-mixers have a very quick cutting and efficient mixing ability and come in sizes from 11 cubic metres to 42 cubic metres."
Eastern Spreaders was appointed in 2018 as Australian distributors for Renn Roller Mills, also from Canada.
"The Renn mills have 12, 24, 36 and 48 inch wide rollers," the spokesman said.
"The 16 inch diameter rollers are precision-machined and dynamically balanced.
"We also supply Renn grain baggers and unloaders."
A recent addition to the range of equipment supplied by Eastern Spreaders is the K Two Muck Spreader.
"This spreader is designed to handle large quantities of manures and sludge," the spokesman said.
"It features twin vertical beaters on the rear discharge with replaceable hardened boron steel rotor teeth.
"It is available in six to 26 tonne models.
"The K Two Muck Spreader has a spreading pattern for manures up to 20 metres."
