Pictures: Scotgrass 2019 showcases latest grassland kit

The triennial Scotgrass show took place in Dumfries last week, showcasing the very latest machines designed to make dealing with grass an easier job.

From monster foragers to small paddock toppers, the show had it all, and was even blessed with a scorching mid-May day. Punters got to see all the kit in action on working plots at Crichton Royal Farm.
