The two-day inaugural field days event being staged in Palmerston in October has attracted considerable interest, the organiser says.
Farm machinery and equipment suppliers around Otago had said they would attend the event on October 12 and 13, Palmerston and Waihemo A&P Association President Paul Mutch said.
The field days would showcase machinery and equipment in action, he said.
Other activities planned included a beef and lamb award and a fashion parade.
The association is running the field days after expanding the annual A&P show to a two-day event, and holding two one-day equestrian events in the autumn.
Palmerston was well placed as a junction town to draw in people and exhibitors, Mr Mutch said.
Field days are held at Waimumu, Lincoln and Lawrence every second year, and annual field days are held at Mystery Creek near Hamilton.
The Palmerston event is being organised by an A&P committee led by Waikouaiti farmer Jan Malloch.
