Grass Technology and Atkins will be hosting a series of Demonstration Days from June 18th - 21st.
The headlines are that the Grass Technology Demo will take place on four different farms - Rathmore, Co. Kerry on Tuesday 18th June; Rathkeale, Co. Limerick on Wednesday 19th; Killeagh Co. Cork on Thursday 20th June and Cahir, Co. Tipperary on Friday 21st June (exact details are shown below). The time will be from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm. Grasstech will demonstrate the Zero Grazing system and show how this is working. It is also planned to demonstrate the new Pro 2500 Grass Seeder and offer valuable advice from Germinal in relation to the latest developments in Grass Seeding.
Each of the farmers who are hosting the demonstration are already on Grasstech machines and are well experienced in zero grazing, they are key zero grazing farmers and well thought of in each area. The demonstration will be held in a field – these are fully prepared and each farmer will have all prepared (one area allocated to zero graze on the day and half an acre allocated to reseed with new grass seeder on the day).
Grasstech will arrive on farm with the demonstration tractor, seeder and aerator by truck each day and will be set up by 10.00 each morning. The main roads will have sign posting, leading to the field. Germinal Seeds will have a speaker/specialist there each day to talk/present on latest developments in grass seed. Grasstech, the host farmer and Germinal Seeds will all present short talks.
The Demo will start at 11:00am, have talks at 11:30 and be finished by 1:30pm.
