The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has completed a very successful presence at the Henty Machinery Field Days 2022 event in Henty, NSW, southern Australia’s single biggest agricultural event.
ARTC took an exhibition stall and our team on the ground met with plenty of the estimated 60,000 visitors to the three-day event held between September 20th – 22nd at a special 105-hectare site in Henty.
The event gives over 3,500 businesses involved in the agricultural industries and allied sectors the chance to showcase their products and services to visitors from a 500km radius ready to buy, learn, research future purchases, and have a family fun day out.
Henty Machinery Fields Days returned with a bang after being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid. ARTC once again took the opportunity to interact with farmers and explain the role that ARTC plays in helping to deliver their products to local and export markets.
As well as explaining to farmers how the current ARTC network supports the agricultural sector, transporting millions of tons of grain and other products, ARTC also took the opportunity to talk up the benefit of the Inland Rail program of works.
ARTC Interstate Network Group Executive Simon Ormsby said:
“Henty Machinery Field Days is a fantastic event that brings together stakeholders from right across the agricultural sector to the heart of the nation’s food bowl in southern NSW. ARTC was once again very proud to be present.
“After two years of cancellations due to covid, our representatives really valued the opportunity to meet and talk with the farming community and tell them how ARTC is supporting them in getting their products to market in a fast and cost-efficient manner.
“We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to get back to the event again next year to see old friends and make more new ones.”
