Have you ever invented or modified something to make life easier or safer on your farm?
The fourth annual Herdwatch Agventions competition in association with the Tullamore Show is set to return this August bigger and better than ever. This year, Tipperary company Herdwatch has joined forces with Rodney Cox, Nicholas Berry and team once again to try and bring even more inventors to the event by organising an ‘Agventions’ competition.
Farmers with an innovative streak are invited to showcase their farming inventions and farm adaptions as part of the Tullamore Show’s National Inventions Competition with six different classes including Inventions In Agriculture, Labour Saving Devices, Inventions in AgTech and Inventions that are “Too big to travel”.
The best Agvention, selected by an expert panel, will get a €300 cash prize and will be entered in the National Inventions Competition which has a prize fund of €3,600.
All valid entries to this year’s Agventions competition will also receive a discounted ticket for entry to the Tullamore Show.
