Irish National Ploughing Championships 22nd - 24th September 2015

National Irish Ploughing Championships 2015

 

Irish sales manager Colm Malone, along with Sales Support manager Emma Jacob, attended the 3 day National Irish Ploughing Championships including visits from Marketing Director James McCulloch OBE and Ireland and UK Sales Manager Mark Armstrong.

With more than 281,000 attending over the 3 days it was amazing to see so much interest in, and support for, the agricultural sector in Ireland.

Over 1500 exhibitors were present at the event providing plenty to look at and explore over the three days.

Although the main topic of our conversations involved beef cattle, there was still plenty of interest within the sheep and dairy sectors. This demonstrates that farmers from all aspects of livestock farming are interested in how trace element supplementation can benefit their stock. Trace elements continue to be at the forefront of Irish farmers minds, with bolusing becoming a very popular form of supplementation.

Agrimin were exhibiting within the Irish Aberdeen Angus Society’s marquee. With some fantastic stock on show and breeders that were so passionate about their animals, it was a complete honour to be part of their exhibit.

The 85th National Ploughing Championships will take place in Screggan, Tullamore, Co Offaly from Sept 20th – 22nd 2016

Agrimin would like to thank all involved and especially the Irish Aberdeen Angus Society for their kind hospitality and look forward to next year’s event.
