We're really excited about our 40th trip to the Ploughing Championships as we celebrate our 40th birthday this year too!

On our stand we'll be launching our 3.5m Cyclone Mower which has also been shortlisted for the Enterprise Ireland Innovation Arena.  

We'll have a special edition 2600LGP ruby tanker to celebrate our 40th and to give a nod to the past when our tankers were painted red!

One thing we haven't seen a change in over the past 40 years, is the number of farming injuries and fatalities on our farms. As John our MD put it: "Although there was a drop in the numbers about 20 years ago, the numbers are climbing again."

We heard about a great lady, Alma Jordan from a company called AgriKids. Alma is the author of a beautiful range of story books all centred on farm safety to engage, educate and empower children to be farm safety ambassadors.

We're delighted that Alma will be joining us for the duration of the Ploughing Championships. Call to our stand to see Alma's beautiful books and take a selfie with Tom and Sarah, the characters from the books and their magical friend, Mr. Brambles!

We're on Row 19, Stand 456 and we look forward to seeing you there!
