Everything for agriculture at day two of FarmFest

THIS year's CRT FarmFest has cemented itself once again as the destination for everything agriculture.

The second day of the three-day farm field day event did not disappoint organisers with numbers continuing to be up from last year and 60,000 people expected to walk through the gates by the end of tomorrow.

Fairfax Rural Events group manager Kate Nugent said people were visiting from all parts of Queensland and beyond.

"What we are seeing is there seems to be an optimism amongst exhibitors and we have certainly got happy visitors and that's a reflection of the hard work that goes into this event," Ms Nugent said.

"It's great to see these kinds of events staged in rural Australia.

"It's the people of the land, professionals of the land who get this opportunity to come to our event that is in regional Australia and the Darling Downs is delivering."

Ms Nugent said the event ticked every box and said the people who were attending were quintessential Aussies who were there to talk to the manufacturers about the products they were using to hopefully be able to deliver more effective farming practices with respect to food and fibre.

The last day of CRT FarmFest is tomorrow and gates will be open from 9am to 4pm at Kingsthorpe Park on the Warrego Hwy, about 20km west of Toowoomba.
