FTMTA Grassland And Muck 2018

Anthony Dunford, Abbey Retail Sales Representative, talking to customers


After what has been 9 months of very average weather grass has finally taken off, crops are in the ground, ground has dried out and things are more back to normal for time of year.

The 17th of May at Gurteen Agricultural College saw record crowds come and see a most impressive set of static and demonstration stands. Rhee was something there for milk and meat producers and contractors. They got to see the machines in action.

Abbey were very busy all day answering queries in relation to cashing in on Slurry to retain its full nutritive value; handling the current regulations and where to next. Many farmers were inquiring about retro-fit Applicator Systems.

Abbey had their Tri-App at the Demo plot with its mast to facilitate ease of raising and lowering in the field, the Trailing Shoe to present the Slurry in discrete lines and the impressive distributor system.

Farmers were also planning forward to the winter feed season looking at various diet feeding solutions.

O’Brien’s Tri Axle 3500 Tanker drew a lot of attention on the Abbey stand with its distinctive green colour.

“What an impressive event, the weather, the crowds, the atmosphere made a great day. Attendees were really looking for solutions to business needs on their farm”, remarked Michael O’Grady. “Slurry Management was top of the agenda. We were pleased to have our Tri-App on demo during the day and to be able to answer questions first hand”
