Open Day low emission slurry equipment TAMS

MAJOR Open Day – 6th December

This is an excellent opportunity for applicants of TAMS II scheme or anyone considering upgrading their slurry handling operations to have their questions answered about low-emission slurry spreading (LESS) equipment.


“Low-emission slurry spreading techniques are increasingly popular with plenty of options and systems available under TAMS,” explains Martin Walsh of Major Equipment. “Not all products are suitable for Irish conditions nor are they appropriate for individual circumstances.  We want to help farmers navigate through the various choices so they can focus on producing the best product possible.”


Major Equipment will display its own low-emission slurry spreaders on the day. The new 7.5m Dribble Bar and Trailing Shoe units are designed to apply slurry to the soil surface as accurately as possible while minimising nutrient loss and ammonia emissions. They are easily mounted onto the back door of a vacuum tank without welding or fabricating, making them ideal for retro-fitting.


Representatives from Teagasc will share advice about the benefits of trailing shoe and dribble bar systems plus TAMS supports available.  There will also be information on farm diversification schemes available to farming families. Vogelsang Injection Systems and First Citizen Agri Finance will also attend to offer advice and answer any queries people may have.


Major Equipment is also delighted to welcome IFA President Joe Healy as a special guest.
