WIDELY acknowledged as the oldest event of its kind in Australia, Quality Wool will again be on location in Paskeville as the 2017 Yorke Peninsula Field Days kicks off later this month.

The biennial event will take place over three days at the traditional site located on Paskeville’s Copper Coast Highway, beginning on Tuesday, September 26th and wrapping up on Thursday, September 28th.

Quality Wool will be based out of Site 540, located on the Alford Road section of the YP Field Days layout.

In addition to their team being on hand to provide information about the “Q” and field enquiries, Quality are also running a ‘guess the yield, micron and VM’ competition which will see the winner with the most accurate prediction walk away with a new esky.

Expected to attract up to 30,000 visitors over the three days, the Yorke Peninsula Field Days were established in 1894 and are acknowledged as the oldest in Australia.

The highly-acclaimed event has a major focus on agriculture and the future with extensive displays of the latest agriculture machinery and equipment, technology, information and services on a 30 hectare static display site area.

The event program includes fashion parades, working sheep dogs, wool and sheep, guest speaker presentations, quality crafts and general interest products and services.

The YP Field Days was last held in 2015, with over 35,000 people attending.
