President’s Welcome and Invitation
PRESIDENT – YORKE PENINSULA FIELD DAYS INC.
On behalf of the Yorke Peninsula Field Days committee and members I offer a warm welcome and invitation to attend the Biennial Field Days held in September at Paskeville SA.
The Yorke Peninsula Field Days is the oldest Field Days in Australia and draws on the experience of over 120 years to offer a three-day event featuring the best agricultural and general interest exhibitors in Australia.
Once again there will be over 700 exhibitors offering attendees the chance to experience the latest in agricultural innovation. Agricultural production contributes $6.2billion to the state’s economy and is an exciting industry to be involved with. There are many sectors to this industry including broad acre grain, sheep and cattle production, wool, wine grapes and the more intensive industries of dairy, poultry, pig and vegetable production. These industries support the vibrant communities that make up the South Australian rural regions.
As you stroll around the YP Field Day site you’ll have the opportunity to experience exhibitors showcasing their agricultural products and services but there are also many general interest sites, and keep an eye out for great entertainment as well. There really is something for everyone.
The YP Field Days regularly hosts in excess of 30,000 attendees over the 3 days and an event of that size takes a considerable amount of organisation and preparation. With that I acknowledge the Agricultural Bureau members, who make up the Field Days committee, and our personnel whose commitment, dedication and vision for the YP Field Days ensures its continual success.
I also thank many volunteers, both individual and local community organisations, who offer valuable service before, during and after the event.
I also thank our sponsors for their support, in particular our major sponsor The Yorke Peninsula Country Times who provide The YP Field Days Official Programme and Directory in which we encourage our exhibitors to advertise their attendance and products.
The committee and bureau members look forward to welcoming you to the YP Field Days.
