Tractor preview: On-site pictures from ‘Ploughing 2018’
The National Ploughing Championships take place in Screggan, Tullamore (Co. Offaly) this week (September 18-20 inclusive).
The exhibition opens tomorrow (Tuesday). However, AgriLand was on-site yesterday – to preview the tractors on display.
While some brands (such as Case IH, Claas and John Deere) are not present in any meaningful capacity, other tractor marques are out in force – ready to show their wares.
Below, we bring you a pictorial preview of the tractor highlights that await in Co. Offaly. Stay tuned to AgriLand for detailed articles on some of the individual machines – over the course of the week.
