The Moss Vale Small Farm Field Day is on for the third year, and there will be plenty of options to suit the farming environment of the Highlands.

Organiser Elizabeth Newham Nichols said the niche of small farms in the area had prompted the creation of the field day.

“There are lots of farm field days, but they focus more on broader acreage,” she said.

“Exhibitioners will bring what they normally have on offer, plus items specifically made for the smaller farmer.”

One exhibitior is Leghorn Industries’ Mick Lea from Wagga Wagga, who has brought along his options for chicken farming on smaller blocks.

“We have coups for 100 to 1500 chickens for intensive farming on a smaller scale,” he said.

There will be presentations, demonstrations and competitions for those wishing to find out the latest techniques and technologies around sustainability, equine health and farming.

Elizabeth said along with the tractors, farming machinery and agricultural groups setting up tents, there would be entertainment on offer.

“The continued interest generated from previous years has certainly helped us to build a wide range of displays and a comprehensive schedule of events,” she said.

“These will include the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia’s Rifle Range, reptile talks and fantastic working dog demonstrations.

“There will also be old farm machinery in action, kids’ rides and face painting – a great family day out.”

The livestock area will be increased this year, with sheep and alpacas on display for those with small holdings looking for alternatives.

The Small Farm Field Day will be held at the Moss Vale Showground on the February 4 and 5 from10.00am to4.00pm.

Tickets will be $5 each with under 15 years free, and all activities are free after entry. To find out more, visit 苏州美甲美睫培训smallfarmfieldday苏州美甲美睫培训419论坛.
