NOT even the thickest fog can hide the great business deals to be had at this year’s Ag-Grow Field Days.
“It’s a great way for remote and rural communities to nail down good deals,” said Ag-Grow managing director Geoff Dein.
“The vendors are very competitive, and you can walk around, look at each brand, and weigh them up.”
About 425 vendors representing more than 2000 manufacturers are attending the field days.
“There is quite a good cross-section of new vendors coming from all over Australia,” said Mr Dein.
The annual offers a chance for manufacturers to build up a business relationship with their customers.
“There’s nothing like face-to-face. You see some pretty good business being done,” said Mr Dein.
But it’s not all work and no play.
“There’s a fair bit of socialising goes on. It’s a good opportunity to catch up with other remote farming people,” Mr Dein said.
Free shuttle buses will operate daily from Coles, leaving at 8am, 10am and midday, and returning every hour from 5pm until midnight.
