Last Thursday’s Tillage 2008 event may have been cancelled, but the Norfolk Farm Machinery Club’s Normac event at Brettenham, Thetford, Norfolk went ahead as planned.

The host farm’s sandy soils may not have presented too much of a challenge to some of the cultivation kit working, but it gave a great chance to see the latest machinery in action.

Here are some of the machines working on the day.
