John will also make an announcement about an investment GRDC is embarking upon with FarmLink and Temora Shire Council at TAIC.

This year all your meals, drinks and entertainment are included in the entry fee. FarmLink partner Avant Agri is providing morning tea, CommBank is again supplying soft drinks during the day, Pulse Australia is sponsoring a ‘Lentil Lunch’ of Moroccan lamb soup and chickpea and lamb burgers and AGT is again hosting the Open Day cut out with refreshments at the end of the day.

As well as the catering, again this year we have great support from our partners in delivering the Open Day. Some of our partners are hosting themes - Riverina LLS is sponsoring the Soils theme and providing a pH test kit for participants to be able to take home to start to get a handle on the pH conditions of their own soil. Grain Growers is hosting the Agricultural Technology theme and Commonwealth Bank is hosting our Ladies Tour. Dow Seeds is giving away 2 tonnes of seed as a door prize! Other partners are hosting trade displays and will have a range of materials and merchandise available on the day (some of our partners are doing both). There will be a large array of farm machinery on display with our partners Hutcheon and Pearce, Intersales and Temora Truck and Tractor all having displays on site.

As a special promotion anyone who brings a friend who is not already a FarmLink member and comes to see FarmLink CEO Cindy Cassidy on the day, will go into the draw for a special giveaway.
