Advocates say there are still barriers with farmers accessing free health checks.
A nurse offering the service at the Henty Machinery Field Days said younger farmers need to shift their attitudes towards health for a long-term benefit.
Rod Hatty, 79, is a farmer north of Matong and said it is important to get regular health checks at his age.
"Even though I'm doing things with my own doctor, I've got to be getting checks ... and this is a bit of a backup and to compare how the different tests come out," Mr Hatty said.
"Once you get older more things can go wrong and you're closer to the day when you're not here.
"So you need to watch for the things that might come up ... prevention is better than a cure."
Mr Hatty has been working on the farm since 1965 and said while it can be challenging, it has also been very rewarding.
"There's a lot of satisfaction in being able to achieve things and what can be done over the years," he said.
The 20 minute screenings offered check blood pressure, blood glucose levels, farmers' height and weight, vision and also involves a cancer screening and mental health tests.
"Old farmers are better at engaging; I've had a bit of trouble with the younger farmers," said nurse Alison Hescock.
"It's not diagnostic, just a screening tool to see if there's anything out of whack."
National Center for Farmer Health program and data coordinator Tracey Hatherell said there is no farm without good health.
"[Farmers] have already taken a day off or some time away from the farm, so why not take the opportunity for a comprehensive health check," she asked.
"We're trying to ... get a broader footprint across the country by reaching out to all farmers of all ages to start looking at their health as their number one asset.
"It's not the farm, it's not the tractors, it's not the livestock, it's actually their health, because without them, the farm is nothing."
