Several agricultural machinery shows are taking place over the coming weeks here in Ireland. Across the pond – in Britain – LAMMA 2018 opened its doors to the farming public yesterday (January 17).
Alas, due to severe, choppy winds, the event was cancelled today. Today should have been the second day of the two-day exhibition.

Nevertheless, the event did attract sizeable crowds yesterday – exact figures have yet to be confirmed. There was a plethora of farm machinery on display; this is not surprising, given that LAMMA is now the biggest event of its type in the UK.
Photographer Tim Scrivener was there for AgriLand, capturing these shots from the Peterborough-based event.
It’s worth noting that this is LAMMA’s last year at its current location; the 2019 event will move to the NEC – an exhibition centre in Birmingham (England).
