The Fodder Festival will return this year with the one-day event scheduled for Victoria's Elmore Events Centre on Wednesday, March 17.
The Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA) has teamed up with the Elmore and District Machinery Field Days to organise the follow-up to the inaugural Fodder Festival in 2018.
The event will feature field machinery demonstrations, static machinery displays and booth displays.
Visitors will have an opportunity to meet a range of business representatives and check out their latest offerings in one location on one day.
"The Fodder Festival will engage all fodder industry sectors from growers, contractors, traders and end-users," AFIA's new chief executive officer Paula Fitzgerald said.
"This is a fantastic opportunity to check out machinery in action in the paddock and to get up to date information on new products and technologies available to the fodder industry leading into the 2021 season," Ms Fitzgerald said.
"We are looking forward to a return to routine with this festival set to be a regular biennial event on the AFIA and Elmore Field Days calendars," she said.
The 2021 event will feature the latest in big big square balers.
In the lead-up to the festival, those who register will also have the chance to virtually observe crop preparations and cutting and raking.
