All done and dusted at Grass & Muck

By on
The sun sets and dust settles as Grass & Muck 2018 comes to a close. Alistair Chambers writes.
The sun sets and dust settles as Grass & Muck 2018 comes to a close. Alistair Chambers writes.

The gate closed at Grass & Muck 2018 on what can only be described as the perfect day for the paying public as the trade came to a close.

Speaking to Gary Ryan of the FTMTA he said that they were very happy with how the day had gone and the attendance was confirmed to us as close to 11,900 people, this is 500 more than the previous show in 2016.

The way the weather fell, as well as the fact that the spring is late meant that there wasn’t a great panic for farmers and contractors to get home to get work done.

Speaking to farmers on the day, they were amazed at the volume and quality of equipment on display and commented that this show was a great way to see the machines working in their proper environment and to speak to the dealers and manufacturers about their machines.

The added bonus of doing this in the sunshine with a nice bit of dust after the long winter made it a great day for everyone involved and gave the sector a much needed day out and confidence boost after a tough few months for all.

There was €35m worth of equipment on display and the demonstration plots. All this gear made short work of the grass and left Gurteen looking completely bald and with lots of dust. A lovely sight after the wet time.
