Everything is being prepared as tickets go on sale for the iconic Wilmot Field Days to be held on Wednesday and Thursday 28 and 29 February 2024. An immersive two-day on-farm experience at Wilmot Cattle Co’s New England property near Ebor NSW.

This year’s theme, Accelerating the Change: Food, Fibre & Nature, will focus on implementing climate-smart farming practices that build natural capital and bolster productivity, profitability, and resilience.  

Hosted by Wilmot Cattle Co and presented by Macdoch Ag Group, the Wilmot Field Day is a unique event on the agriculture calendar, bringing together producers, thought leaders and subject matter experts to share their insights and experiences. 

General Manager at Wilmot Cattle Co, Stuart Austin, is eager to emphasise the value of first-hand farming stories to attendees. 

“The heart of our event lies in our focus on people and the connections that are built. This is part of what makes our renowned paddock walks so popular. It’s this real-world knowledge exchange that has underpinned the phenomenal turnout and growth we’ve had each year,” Stuart explained. 

“For 2024, we’re thrilled to announce a line-up of some of the most exciting minds in agriculture, business and climate-smart farming practices,” Stuart concluded.
