Yesterday’s (May 17) FTMTA (Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association) Grass & Muck event is now just a memory. Luckily, the sunshine remains – for now at least.
We’ve been busy here at AgriLand, bringing you news and shots from the site – before, during and after.
Regular AgriLand contributor Justin Roberts was there too; he spent the day catching up with dealers, distributors and manufacturers. He also took time out to take these insightful photographs – from literally all areas of the venue.
All of these shots were snapped on-site yesterday – at Gurteen College.

Describing the showcase, the FTMTA explained: “The focus at Grass & Muck is very much on working machinery, with ongoing demonstrations throughout the day in the grass harvesting, re-seeding, silage pit, slurry spreading and farmyard manure spreading areas.”
Fertiliser was spread on the area destined for the working (machinery) demonstrations back in mid-to-late February.
As it turned out, significant grass growth was evident on these plots – certainly more than might have been expected some weeks ago.
