Time is running out for your chance to win a Massey Ferguson 5160 tractor worth €55,000.

The raffle for the tractor is being run by Bóthar and is all in the name of charity.

All funds raised go to charity.

Bóthar is the Irish international charity that provides livestock and skills to poverty-stricken families as a means of long-term development aid.

The charity relies on charitable donations to provide support to families in areas such as Rwanda, Albania, Kosovo, Tanzania and Uganda.

The locations of some of the previous winners.

Many Irish farmers continue to donate in-calf dairy heifers and Irish dairy goats to the charity, which are then airlifted to farming families in these areas.


Bóthar is raffling a Massey Ferguson 5160 to raise funds to cover the cost of transport of these donated animals.

The Irish Farmers Journal visited the Bóthar stand to learn more about the raffle and the charity.
