February & March 2020 Field Days!

Posted by Sam Searle on Jan 29, 2020 8:41:02 AM

Everyone likes a good field day! Farmers, Manufacturers, Machinery Dealers and even those that don't have anything to do with farming can find something interesting to look at, or just generally have a good day out!

We too like a good field day, it's where we get to meet our customers, hear success stories and above all receive feedback on our quality equipment! And since Rata is built on customer feedback, and working to solve problems for farmers, your feedback is both much appreciated and highly utilised!

Rata have got a good number of field days marked down for attendance this year, with some others still being considered! All the main New Zealand Field days (In Waimumu, Fielding and Hamilton are on the list!...)

In the next two months we'll be at four field days throughout New Zealand & Australia. Find out where below! More details on these to come later on, once dates and bookings have been confirmed.
