THE latest machinery will be on show when Ripon Farm Services holds its 16th annual New Year two-day show at the Yorkshire Events Centre on the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate on Wednesday, January 15, and Thursday, January 16.

As well as offering a fantastic opportunity to network and meet up with friends old and new, the show is also a great chance to learn more about both agricultural machinery from the major manufacturers and suppliers and its optimum use, with a series of seminars taking place.

John Deere will have a large range of machinery on show, including the all-new 6120M, 6140M, and 6195M tractors, plus the revolutionary 8RX, the industry’s first fixed-frame four-track tractor.

In the sprayer area there will be the new John Deere 4140i Self-Propelled Sprayer, alongside the newly acquired Mazzotti franchise. Mazzotti is a John Deere Company and produces a full line of Self Propelled Sprayers under its own brand name.

Kramer will show its all-new KL55.5T telescopic wheeled loader and the KT447 Black Edition telehandler.

Dalbo will be celebrating its tenth anniversary in the UK with two special edition rollers in black to celebrate.

Danny Robinson, of Ripon Farm Services, said: “We are delighted to have the cream of the crop on show, including some of the very latest machinery.”

The Technology Zone will highlight Ripon Farm Services’ FarmSight service, designed to help customers to get the most out of their technology and equipment to maximise return on investment and farming efficiency.

FarmSight offers a variety of additional resources to incorporate a specialist support programme for a wide range of precision farming products such as AMS, RTK, AutoTrac and Service Advisor Remote.

The majority of the focus is on the support of technical precision farming products, including GreenStar, JDLink, Wireless Data Transfer and Remote Display Access. It also provides support with machine optimisation, annual legislative tests, such as NSTS sprayer testing, as well as other training needs.

The Technology Zone will host seminars on both days of the show.

Bridgestone will focus on how to make the right choice on farm tyres. Choosing the right tyres can make a huge impact on efficiency, cost and land management and the team will talk about value for money, field and/or road applications, soil compaction, tyre pressure management and weight distribution, looking to the future with a total farming mobility solution.

John Deere will examine agriculture’s ‘digital revolution’, and how using the My John Deere portal and advanced telematics to manage the fleet, control costs can support modern farm businesses. The seminar will explore how connected machines can enhance performance, reduce service costs and improve uptime.

Kuhn Farm Machinery’s attention will be on achieving quality forage, focusing on two key areas of forage production. They will show how improvements in swath management can affect both the quality of forage and the wear life of the forage harvester/baler and will also take a look at bale wrapping technology and how getting it right at the start makes a world of difference as to what comes out at the end.

BASIS points will be available again at the event - both for attending and extra points for attending the seminars.

Danny said: “Take this unique opportunity for Yorkshire to explore the latest innovations from a wide range of companies, speak to the experts and see all the products up close – all in the warm and dry of the Yorkshire Events Centre.”
