A Very Successful FTMTA Grass & Muck 2016
The much anticipated FTMTA Grass & Muck event held at Gurteen College on May 12th was a tremendous success with a record attendance of nearly 11,000 visitors. The considerable efforts of the exhibitors with regard to presentation and display resulted in a fantastic visual spectacle on the day with an impressive array of machinery on site. Those present viewed ongoing demonstrations throughout the day in the grass, reseeding, silage pit, slurry spreading and farm yard manure spreading areas as well as visiting the numerous trade stands.
The site was a hub of activity from early in the day with large crowds viewing demos all across the site from the slurry and dung fields, through the grass fields and around the silage pit. Following a morning shower, weather conditions on the day were excellent with ice cream and sun cream in equal demand in temperatures that rivaled the glorious conditions enjoyed at the first FTMTA Grass in 2010.
The Association thanks Sergeants Joe Kellet and Aidan Leonard and their team at Borrisokane Garda Station for their assistance this year, as in previous years.
It is always the intention of FTMTA to leave a venue in good order and in this case we have been greatly assisted by the sponsorship provided by Finol Oils Ltd towards the waste bins on site. Finol Oils are the distributors of a range of agricultural tractor and transmission oils under the Total and Elf brands.
FTMTA wish all farmers and contractors a safe and successful silage season.
