Opening the Field Days will be WA inventor and farmer Ray Harrington, who has seen plenty of innovation in the industry and on his own farm.

There is also the revamped Dyson Jones Wool and Technology Pavilion, which has been transformed into a technology hub to showcase some of the latest and upcoming innovations in farming.

This year's Newdegate field days will feature the latest machinery from tractors, seeders, harvesters and trucks for attendees to have a look at up close and personal.

Merino producers can also see the latest genetics available in the Bayer Avenge Ram Shed, and British breeds will be on display close by.

After all that walking, the committee has made sure there will be plenty of food on offer with great new vendors plus all of the favourites making a return.

If you need a bit of a sit down, head to the Family Interest Display Pavilion, pull up a seat and check out the fashion parade, which features the latest fashions direct from the catwalk.

Kids will have plenty to keep them entertained, with fireworks on Wednesday night and international act Zap Circus performing live shows throughout the first day.

And don't forget to keep an eye out for entry boxes around the field days for your chance to name the new mascot.
