AgriLand spent today at the site of Grass & Muck; this event opens to the public tomorrow (9:00am-5:00pm; Thursday; May 17).

It's organised by the FTMTA (Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association); the venue is Gurteen (Agricultural) College - located close to the Tipperary/Offaly border.

There was plenty of activity on-site today - amidst the incessant sunshine - as exhibitors trucked in more machinery and enthusiastically prepped their stands and demonstration plots.

As can be seen from our extensive picture gallery (below), a sizeable and varied range of equipment has now descended on the locality - in readiness for what has been described as "the biggest farm machinery event in Ireland of 2018".

Before scrolling down to our gallery (which was shot today and which provides a preview of what awaits show-goers tomorrow) don't forget to check out the official site map.
