The Seymour Alternative Farming Expo is held annually in April, servicing not just the Goulburn Valley region, but much of Hume and Western Victoria.

These field days serve as an opportunity for companies to showcase the latest developments in farming practice and rural infrastructure, including machinery, equipment, technology and services.

Ahrens will again be in attendance at the Seymour Field Days, offering a range of rural infrastructure products designed to not just make your farming life easier, but to stand the test of time.

What to do while you're there?

Things to do in The Seymour Region

Have a barbecue at the Historic Hughes Creek Bridge; perhaps best known for its association to Ned Kelly. At the age of 11, Ned rescued Richard Shelton who had fallen into the creek after trying to cross over on a tree bridge. The incident occurred only 150 metres downstream from the Bridge.

Listen to the birds and watch out for local wildlife on the Goulburn River Walk or delve into the town’s history at the Australian Light Horse Memorial Park and Vietnam Veterans’ Commemorative Walk.
