Midnight tonight is the last chance for farmers to enter what we believe is the best farming giveaway in the country – the Agriland #FarmFree competition.
Agriland has teamed up with some of the best-known agricultural brands and manufacturers in the country to give one lucky farmer the chance to win a range of products.
As part of the competition there is some great machinery and products up for grabs.
Massey Ferguson mower
The lucky winner will take home a 2.42m Massey Ferguson disc mower which can be driven by a tractor as low as 50 horsepower.
This mower provides a sturdy and economical solution to the small and medium size farm without compromising quality and finish.
With an average swath width of 1.65m, this mower would suit a farmer with a limited amount of mowing to carry out while it also boasts features you would expect to find on a larger machine.
€1,000 worth of Elanco animal health products
Also up for grabs is €1,000 worth of Elanco animal health products.
The winner of the competition will have the choice between Elanco’s CLiK or CLiKZiN product for sheep or Fasinex for cattle.
Elanco’s CLiK product provides 16-week cover for blowfly that minimises labour and it is also suitable for ewes and lambs with any fleece length, while CLiKZiN gives eight weeks of protection against blowfly.
The Fasinex 240 product for cattle is recommended for dairy cows during the dry period. It contains triclabendazole, the only flukicide to kill all three stages of liver fluke.
€1,000 worth of Gain animal feed

1,000t of Ecosyl silage additive
As part of our #FarmFree competition there is 1,000t of Ecosyl silage additive up for grabs, worth €1,400.
For 1,000t placed into a silage pit, that would give you an extra 37t to feed. If silage is worth €38/t, that’s an extra €1.406 return.
That goes a long way to paying for the silage additive for the whole clamp.
Ecosyl Products Ltd is a UK based silage additive market leader with subsidiaries in USA and Canada.
A 536LiXP battery Husqvarna chainsaw and high spec 4.2AH battery and hi-speed charger, QC 330 are also up for grabs.
The battery powered Husqvarna chainsaws have a brushless motor that delivers full torque at low revs, while providing 25% higher efficiency than a standard brush motor.
The ergonomic design of the Husqvarna Battery Series makes working long hours easier for operators.
Meanwhile the battery dramatically reduces vibrations, which in turn reduces the strain on an operators shoulders, arms and wrists.
Heat Detection and Health Monitoring System worth €8,500
