Farmers are "on a knifes edge".
And despite the anxiety surrounding the crops at home, farmers have still turned out in droves to the Henty Machinery Field Days.
Director Ross Edwards said the three-day event prides itself on "having something for everybody".
"It is an escape for a lot of farmers who have come this year," he said.
"You don't have to go very far west from here to see how dry it is.
"But there is something about the field days which appeals to the blokes, their wives and kids which makes it a real family event that everyone can enjoy.
"And take their minds off any struggles back home."
Although the management couldn't confirm exact numbers, the event was attended by up to 60,000 people across the days.
"The numbers were down only a little bit the first day," Mr Edwards said.
"But the second and third days we had very strong attendance," Mr Edwards said.
"Each and every year we have feedback from people that just can't believe how big it is getting.
"And we hope that can continue to grow and be bigger and better each year.
"The committee has a lot of young people on it which is really encouraging to see for us old blokes that the youth, which are the future of agriculture, are just as passionate about ag as we are.
"The field days will continue to grow and run as smoothly as ever because of these young people."
Mr Edwards said some of the exhibitors were "worrying" about the dry weather stopping people from buying machinery this year.
"Of course that has been a worry for some of our exhibitors," he said.

"But the field days are just as much about getting out there and showing your face to your clients and getting a feel about where they are at.
"Maybe they might need new machines in a year or two and that is the relationship a lot of our exhibitors build while at Henty.
"Hopefully in a few years we won't be as dry and there will be more money changing hands."
The final day on Thursday brought the largest number of visitors to the site with popular events such as the Natural Fibre Fashion Award finals and the Pedigree Sheep and Working Dog Trials.
Mr Edwards said the committee would like to thank all the exhibitors and visitors who attended across the three days.
"Without the support this event wouldn't exist," he said.
"And for those doing it tough, just remember to look after each other."
