The John Deere sponsored demonstrations will be the biggest in the UK this year and they will represent all the main types of mixer wagon currently available including paddle, auger and tub designs.
Visitors will be able to observe the preparation of two different Total Mixed Rations, for dairy cows and also for beef finishing cattle, based on clamp and big bale silage. They will also be able to compare ease of loading and feed out of the individual mixer wagons. Each machine will demonstrate twice, in rotation on both days. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to view the mixing operation from a specially constructed high level gantry
Event manager, Richard Evans comments: “This year’s mixer wagon demonstrations will continue to build on the success of previous events which attracted immense interest from not only dairy and beef farmers, but also sheep and goat producers. A mixer wagon is now an essential piece of equipment for livestock farmers not only eager to maximize their animals’ performance but also make savings on escalating feed costs and labour. This technical demonstration is designed to help farmers make a more informed decision before investing in a complete diet feeder.”
