This year Ag-Grow Emerald Field Days is celebrating the 30th running of the event and managing director Geoff Dein said it sure to be a special one.

Taking place this year from Thursday, June 20, to Saturday, June 22, this year's event has a lot to offer.

While proud of the milestone, Mr Dein said it could only happen as a result of people connecting with people.

"By all means do your internet surfing, but we're all aware that it has its limits and cannot replace picking up the a tool to test it, or sitting in the seat of an ATV to see if its right for you," he said.

"It's a great social event on the calendar, which now gives visitors the ability to try and buy before the end of the financial year.

"We've been waiting for decades for another field day event to re-schedule to a different date.

"Our chance came as a surprise last year and we jumped at the opportunity to change the date.

"It worked very well and now we have fixed a date before June 30 and the results were fantastic.

"Visitors are aligning themselves with the local community who make their investments before the end of financial year, and vendors will be holding stocktake sales with very attractive price points.

"All with the goal of capitalising on the on the tax breaks."

Mr Dein said nominations for the Ag-Grow Superior Multi-Breed Beef Bull Sale are strong again this year and that 'it's good to see the industry utilising such a great facility and the occasion to sell their best bulls'.

He said the the Ag-Grow Premier Invitation Horse Sale will remain the regular feature on Saturday morning.

He said progress over the last 30 years sprang to mind when reflecting on the 30 year milestone.

"There have been massive changes when you reflect on things, but the Ag-Grow field days are still the best way of staying in touch with technology, and with each other," Mr Dein said.

"I welcome everyone to Ag-Grow 2018, wish you all safe travels, and in closing, I'd like to say a special thank you to all our valued sponsors this year and over the years."
