Househam to bring AIR-RIDE and PREDATOR to National Sprayer Demo Day 2019

Househam is set to showcase its latest self-propelled sprayers at this year’s National Sprayer Demo Day.

The annual gathering of machinery operators heads to Churn Estate, Blewbury, on Wednesday 20th February.

Qualified operators will be given the chance to test out Househam’s best-selling AIR-RIDE and its 5,000-litre PREDATOR in real working conditions.

This year’s site includes an 18ha field, a flat 42ha field and over 60ha of cover crops to test sprayer performance and ability.

Robert Willey, managing director of Househam, said: “This is always a great day for us to get out in the field with our customers. It’s unrivalled as an event because it shows farmers the wide range of sprayers they can choose from. We’ll be there with the AIR-RIDE and the PREDATOR, two of the most reliable and technologically advanced British-built sprayers on the market. And there’s nothing better than a working demonstration to see what these machines can really do.”

BREXIT and agriculture over the next 150 years will be key talking points at the next Lincolnshire Farming Conference, to be held on Tuesday 26 February 2019 at the Lincolnshire Showground.

As the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society celebrates its 150th year in 2019, the major theme of the upcoming conference will be ‘for the next 150 years’ – discussing, and debating, how far the industry has come and what’s next for the sector.

Robert Borrill, chairman of the Lincolnshire Farming Conference Committee, said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating 150 years of the Society in 2019. With Lincolnshire being one of the biggest agricultural counties it is great to be able to bring the local farming community together with leading international experts to discuss the future of the agricultural industry – both short-term with Brexit and long-term as we look to the next 150 years.

“Following positive feedback from last year’s conference we’re delighted to once again offer visitors morning workshop sessions with local businesses and the opportunity to explore our exhibition, alongside the line-up of topical talks throughout the afternoon.”

Navigating Brexit as farmers, turning global food trends into profitable opportunities and conservative agriculture are just some of the themes to be discussed. Industry experts include key note speaker Dr. David Hughes; Emeritus Professor of Food Marketing at Imperial College London and Visiting Professor at the Royal Agricultural University, UK.

NFU Chief EU Withdrawal and International Trade Adviser, Gail Soutar, will also be presenting at the conference. Part of a dedicated team within the NFU, responsible for ensuring that the opportunities arising from the UK’s future global trading position are realised and that the interests of British farming are protected, Gail will provide her expert insight on how farmers can navigate Brexit.

Sponsors of the Lincolnshire Farming Conference include Farmacy plc, Openfield, Anglian Water, Househam, Brown & Co, Wilkin Chapman LLP, Streets, OMEX, Riseholme College, Jelf, University of Lincoln and CLAAS.

Robert Borrill added: “As we are a registered charity, the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society are always thankful to our sponsors and the important work they do. Our aims are of course to support the local agricultural community and allied trades, but also to educate about food, farming and the countryside.

“The support from our sponsors allows us to work closely with individuals, schools, organisations and businesses who share our common vision to promote the agricultural industry and support activities that have a positive effect on both the environment and the community.”

The Lincolnshire Showground is well placed geographically attracting both attendees and exhibitors from throughout the Midlands, as well as further afield.

The exhibition is open from 11am to 5.30pm and refreshments will be available alongside networking opportunities. A reception for the Impact Group, the Society’s networking group for under 35s, will also take place after the conference ends at 5.15pm.

Tickets are available now and cost £15 for adults, £6 for students, with members of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society free to attend once registered, including lunch. To book a place at the 2019 conference, please visit
