Mixer Wagon Demonstrations at The Livestock Event

24 June 2013

UK - The popular mixer wagon demonstrations are returning to the Livestock Event to be held on Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 July at The NEC, Birmingham, and organised by the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers.

Sponsored by John Deere, these demonstrations will provide all visitors with the opportunity to make more informed decision ahead of purchase with seven of the leading makes; BVL, Harry West, J F Stoll, King Feeders, Redrock, Shelbourne Reynolds and Trioliet, and each mixing twice a day identical dairy and beef rations.

Farmers will be able to learn the correct order to load ingredients and the optimum mixing times for each model in order to best present the ration to stock and subsequently maximise feed intakes. A specially constructed viewing platform will help livestock farmers better see the 14 demonstrations each day which are unique to this event.

RABDF chief executive, Nick Everington comments: “The rescheduled event in July allows more time for farmers to check out machinery and equipment in advance, place orders and be confident of delivery before autumn sets in. This is a win win situation, with guaranteed delivery times for farmers and suppliers able to invoice machinery in the same year.”
