Organisers of the Spring Farm Machinery Shows are among those who have confirmed that their 2022 events will go ahead.
In recent days, the National Ploughing Association announced that its three-day event would return to Co Laois on September 20th, 21st, and 22nd.
The news comes following the government’s move to remove capacity restrictions on outdoor events.
The AJS Spring Farm Machinery Shows will be one of the first large-scale agricultural events in Ireland in close to two years.
The Spring Farm Machinery group expects “record attendance numbers” this year.
Organisers of the event – which attracts farmers and contractors across Ireland and the UK – claim they have added new features across all three shows.
New to the Millstreet SFM Show is ‘Grass Mac’, a large outdoor arena dedicated to grass machinery to showcase the latest innovations and machinery on offer in the grass sector.
