16th January 2017


Enterprise Ireland showcasing Irish innovation UK’s largest agricultural and machinery show 

Enterprise Ireland will be showcasing three of its agricultural clients at LAMMA, including two that have won top industry awards for innovation and export success.

LAMMA is the UK’s largest agricultural and machinery show and takes place on 18th and 19th January 2017 in Peterborough, UK.

Leading farming app Herdwatch, which allows farmers to record farm events as they happen, and meets all compliance needs without generating paperwork, is marketed as a complete mobile marketing tool. 

Recently launched into Britain, it’s already Ireland’s leading farming app with more than 4000 customers.  It was awarded the Prince Phillip Award at the Livestock Event, and can save up to two hours of time each day as users tap in key record keeping data as they walk around the farm, work in the parlour, or plan breeding management.

They’ll be joined on the Enterprise Ireland stand (Hall 8 stand no 863) by MagGrow, winner of two awards at the National Ploughing Championships, one the sustainable agriculture start-up award, the second the best competitive pitch award.

Maggrow offers pioneering magnetic spraying technology which reduces drift by up to 80% while, at the same time, delivering superior coverage by using fine droplets, a key challenge of conventional drift reduction technologies.

The third company to be promoted is Crowley Engineering, a business that offers innovative engineered solutions within the arable and livestock sectors, manufacturing and installing grain storage facilities, feeding systems, dryers, milling equipment, silos and bins, to name just a few key areas of activity.

In addition, there’ll be 13 companies that have received support from Enterprise Ireland who will be exhibiting at LAMMA under their own banners.  These are Abbey Machinery, Conor Engineering, Cross Agricultural Machinery, Dairymaster, Distag QCS, Future Grass Technology, Hi-Spec Engineering, Major Equipment, Malone Engineering, Mastek, McHale, Samco Agricultural Manufacturing, Tanco Autowrap and Wakely Engineering.

“Enterprise Ireland is delighted to be able to introduce some exciting new products to the huge audience at LAMMA. As part of the Enterprise Ireland 2017-2020 corporate strategy we aim to ensure that Irish agri companies are well positioned to continue to grow their business and make new business contacts in the U.K particularly in the context of Brexitsays Seán Ó Ciardha, Enterprise Ireland.
