Henty Machinery Field Days is an agricultural institution with a proud history spanning six decades. Over the years the not-for-profit co-operative has garnered a reputation for kick starting the last quarter of the agricultural calendar in southern NSW and northern Victoria.
Located midway between Wagga Wagga and Albury-Wodonga, Henty sits in mixed farming heartland.
The co-operative’s board, drawn from local farmers, has never lost sight of the primary reason for its creation – to serve the agricultural industry.
Mainstream machinery field days like Henty provide direct access to the hearts, minds and wallets of the market place.
Now regarded as southern Australia’s single biggest agricultural event, the not-for-profit event showcases the latest in machinery and farm equipment, outdoors and camping products, farm produce, agronomy, country lifestyle, government and health services, agribusiness and finance services.
Run by a board of seven co-operative members, all from southern NSW and involved with agriculture, and supported by 90-plus members of the field days co-operative. Henty Machinery Field Days will this year celebrate 60 years after being founded as a one-day header school at the Henty showground in 1963.
