Kverneland is leading player in big events

KVERNELAND appears to have had a fair innings in the recent round of ploughing championships.

At the Scottish Ploughing Championships, the company scored success through the skills of brothers William and Andrew Morrison. William, from Macduff, Banffshire, won the reversible class, while Andrew won the conventional.

This success follows similar results at the 1999 World Ploughing, and the French National Championships, in which both classes were also won using Kverneland ploughs.

Held near Reims, France on Sept 17 and 18, the 46th World Ploughing Championships saw 59 ploughmen from 30 countries competing for the honours in both reversible and conventional classes. Consistently good soil conditions, on both the stubble and grassland plots, meant standards of work were high and the competition fierce.

As the World Championships were being contested, the French National Championships were also being fought out. The winners in both classes used Kverneland ploughs.
