AgroTrend draws a crowd from near and far

IT WAS early morning and cars were already lined up in anticipation, ready for the AgroTrend field days.

People said it was great to head along for a fun family day out after the flood crisis.

Trevor Ballantyne has been to AgroTrend for the past 13 years.

"People come from Monto, Maryborough and all over; it's great," he said.

Mr Ballantyne said the annual show gave a big boost to the agricultural industry of the region.

Refusing to miss the annual field days, Ben Lobeneier travelled from Monto for AgroTrend.

The man said he had always attended, ever since high school.

"I've been coming for 20 or so years - I wouldn't miss it," he said.

Mr Lobeneier said he loved seeing all the tractors and the latest technology.

"It's a great mix between the old and the new," he said.

With two days to go, the event features hourly fishing displays, working cattle dogs and snakes, antique machinery, cattle exhibits, bush poets and ballads and the newest addition of all, the Ray White Action at 12.30 today.

AgroTrend co-ordinator Col Reynolds said this event was open to all and was not to be missed.

"The items will be auctioned by Bill Young - he's worth the admission money himself to watch. He's very good," Mr Reynolds said.
