President’s Welcome and Invitation

Martin Kenny

On behalf of the Yorke Peninsula Field Days committee and members I offer you a warm welcome and invitation to attend the Biennial Field Days to be held in September 2021 at Paskeville SA.

The Yorke Peninsula Field Days is the oldest Field Days in Australia and draws on the experience of over 125 years to offer a three-day event featuring a broad range of agricultural and general interest exhibitors.

Australia has been recently ravaged by bushfires and the outbreak of the Corona Virus. These events have highlighted the critical importance of sustainable agricultural production, which contributes $6.2billion to the State’s economy and supports the vibrant communities that make up the South Australian rural regions. The Yorke Peninsula Field Days provides an opportunity to showcase the latest innovations in a wide range of agricultural and related endeavours.

On visiting the YP Field Day site you’ll have the opportunity to experience over 600 exhibitors on display, showcasing their agricultural products and services, including many general interest sites, along with food and entertainment. There is something for everyone.

The YP Field Days regularly hosts in excess of 20,000 attendees over the 3 days and an event of that size takes a considerable amount of organisation and preparation. 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 which provides 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 Yorke Peninsula Field Days.
