The event was held at the Ballymena Showgrounds in July and attracted a variety of tractors, as well as visitors, from near and far. Around 60 models of John Deere tractor, from a 1914 Overtime to a modern day 7820, went on show, much to the delight of all the local John Deere fans.

TECU chairman Rodney Getty said: "We decided to incorporate a special John Deere display this year in recognition of the fact that the company’s dealerships have been established in the UK for 40 years now.

"The response, both from exhibitors and visitors, has been very favourable, proving there is a strong following for this popular brand here in Northern Ireland," he said.

TECU treasurer Laurence Woolf added: "As far as we know, this is the only dedication to the 40th anniversary of John Deere in the whole of Ireland, north and south."
