With 65ha (160 acres) of grass to mow, ted, rake, harvest, bale, wrap and clamp, all the main grass machinery companies attending, 200 exhibitors and 12,000 visitors expected, it promises to be an event not to be missed.

There is also a big muck area, with muckspreaders, slurry tankers and injection equipment all being demonstrated.

You can also bring your own FYM or slurry to be analysed by ADAS and there will be copious advice available on how to deal with the changes to the NVZ regulations that come into force in May.

There are also 1.5 acres of grass variety plots so you can see the latest trials and varieties, plus a full seminar programme on profitable grassland management from agronomy to feeding.
