Ag-Grow Field days

FINAL preparations are well underway for the 2010 Ag-Grow Field Days on July 8, 9 and 10.

Some 425 vendors representing more than 2000 manufacturers are attending the field days with great products on offer.

Ladies should check out the Ladies’ Lane in the Eco Pavilion, which will be home to stalls such as Jenny Craig, D’s Fine Jewellery, Total Beauty and Krui Glass Designs.

There is even a Toyworld stall to pick up something for the kids.

The AG Pavilion will host vendors including Fodder Solutions, Enviro Pro, Selected Foods and Seeds, and the Royal Flying Doctor Service, to name a few.

There will also be plenty more products to check out in the Curragh and Steve Taylor pavilions.

Managing director Geoff Dein said support from cattle exhibitors had been strong and numbers in the auction were up on last year, with eight breeds to be auctioned on Thursday and a further four going under the hammer on Friday.

Eighty-two stock horses will be presented for auction on Saturday morning.

After a hard day doing deals, the Cattleman’s Oasis will offer a great place to catch up after the auctions and enjoy a bit of socialising with food right next door and plenty of seats.

The Bull Bar boasts live music again this year, with plenty of temporary toilets nearby, and a free shuttle service will operate all day.
