Grass & Muck 2018 draws to a close: See the highlights…

AgriLand was at Grass & Muck today; the sprawling machinery event drew to a close this evening.

Visitors enjoyed bright, clear skies and even – dare it be said – warm sunshine.

The body behind the event – the FTMTA (Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association) – can heave a sigh of relief, though it’s still a hive of activity on-site. Some machines are now being loaded – in readiness for the long journey ahead.

Of course, much of the larger equipment will remain at the venue – Gurteen College – for another day or two.

Yesterday evening, we brought you a gallery of preview pictures – showing what awaited the hoards of people that travelled to the midlands site today.

Look out, for example, for our upcoming video – aptly capturing the action on the demonstration plots and the sights on the trade stands.

Old-school highlights

While virtually all of the equipment at today’s event was new – or practically new – there were some old-school machines vying for a slice of the action.

For example, there were eye-catching (Fiat/Fiatagri) 110-90s on-site. The 110-90, as tractors go, has amassed what can only be described as a cult following in many parts of Ireland.
