The National Ploughing Championships drew to a close yesterday (September 22) with an attendance of 70,000 people, bringing the total attendance for the event to 277,000
The impressive figure did not quite meet the record set in 2019 (the most recent event), in which 297,000 attended.
Despite not breaking the overall attendance record, this year’s event has set a different record -the largest single-day attendance figure in the event’s history.
The video below shows some of the sights and scenes from day three:
Agriland hosted the official livestream for each of the three days of the event from 12:00p.m to 4:00p.m in association with Lely, FBD and the NPA.
During that time, there was a range of live discussions, debates and interviews in the Agriland pavilion.
The Agriland team also took the livestream audience out and about across the entire event, showcasing everything from the competitions, livestock, machinery and all aspects of agriculture and rural life.
