Innovation and Excellence in Agriculture

The Yorke Peninsula Field Days are acknowledged as the oldest in Australia with the first trial held near Bute, SA, on July 31st 1895.

The permanent site at Paskeville was established in 1975. Eight local branches of the Agricutural Bureau of SA form the organising body and their members are totally responsible for the management and organisation of this prestigious three-day event.
