NEW Hol­land Agri­cul­ture hosted a spe­cial event for Ir­ish farm­ers, con­trac­tors and deal­ers at the The Hub in Cillin Hill in Kilkenny last week.

The man­u­fac­turer’s full lineup was on dis­play, in­clud­ing Ir­ish de­buts for some trac­tors, com­bines, balers, tele­han­dlers and for­age har­vesters along with ploughs, mow­ers and rakes from the new im­ple­ment range.

By hold­ing a stand­alone event in Ire­land, New Hol­land staff say they hoped to show Ir­ish farm­ers and con­trac­tors how se­ri­ously they take this mar­ket. Nigel Honey­man, Prod­uct Spe­cial­ist for com­bines for the Ir­ish and UK mar­ket, ex­plained: “Our Ir­ish cus­tomer base is loyal and we wanted an event that was eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble and didn’t in­volve trav­el­ling too far or com­ing over to the UK. We had a lot of prod­uct ex­perts un­der one roof on the day with all of our lat­est ma­chines, so hope­fully peo­ple found it use­ful.”
