FTMTA Grass & Muck was first held in 2010 and is now a regular biennial event run by FTMTA on alternate years to the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show at Punchestown; both events are run in accordance with the ethos of “organised by the trade for the farmer and contractor”.
Preparations are well underway for what is sure to be the highlight of the Irish farm machinery year, FTMTA Grass & Muck 2020 at Gurteen College, Ballingarry, Roscrea, Co. Tipperary (near Birr) on Thursday, May 14th. Exhibition space at FTMTA Grass & Muck is fully sold out at this stage for what will be the major farm machinery event in Ireland in 2020, organised by the Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA) which is the representative body for the farm machinery industry in Ireland. The membership of the Association compromises over 200 businesses engaged in the manufacture, importation, distribution, retail sale and servicing of farm machinery.
Approximately 40 of the exhibitors will be active in one or other of the demonstration areas. Demonstrations of various types and brands of silage making equipment will be conducted by over 20 firms on in excess of 100 acres of grass with a number of loader brands demonstrating at the silage pit. There will also be a number of exhibitors demonstrating a variety of slurry and dung spreading equipment on grass ground with a number of other firms demonstrating reseeding equipment on a plot of tilled ground.
