About 130 people, including farmers and contractors, and even some children, attended the inaugural Power Farming professional equipment expo at Waimumu last Wednesday.

Power Farming Invercargill dealer principal John Scott said he was pleased with the number of people who attended the event, which was held in the Southern Field Days event centre.

''We had a lot of interest in our high-end gear,'' he said.

''We had gear we normally don't display, and which is normally sold in Canterbury.

''We were extremely happy with the result for the day.''

South Island retail manager Jason Prendergast said they were so impressed with the turnout, they intended to make the Power Farming expo a two-yearly event.

A door prize of $2000 was won by Les Frisby, of Titiroa.
