Each year, the agricultural show at the Great Yorkshire Showground attracts over 130,000 guests and 8,500 animals, making it one of the biggest agricultural shows in the UK, and an essential day out in every UK farmer’s calendar!

Thousands of animals, including sheep, pigs and even pigeons, as well as one of the most prominent show jumping classes in the nation, compete in the judging rings annually. Throughout 2,000 contestants compete in the show’s 21 competitive sections over the course of its four days.

This is the venue where market-leading products are displayed and the most cutting-edge agricultural technology may be seen, from innovative farming equipment and machinery to displays from big-name businesses. The Great Yorkshire Show features live music, entertainment, shopping, and of course, agriculture as its central theme.

We were lucky enough to be present on the day alongside Dairypower approved dealer, James Holding Dairy Engineering, among some other fantastic companies producing milking machines and hoof care products!

Dairypower was an eye-catching feature on the James Holding Dairy Equipment stand. Our Slurry Management Experts – Dairypower UK’s Adrian and the crew from Holding’s were kept on their toes giving out slurry management advice to attendees and showcasing our market leading slurry technology to intrigued farmers.

Our Pro-Clean Ratchet Scraper, Eco-Clean Rope Scraper and Smart Slurry Aeration System were all on display for the 4 day event, the crew from Holding’s even constructed a mini lifelike Smart Slurry Aeration System, where you could watch the bubbles with a push of a button! There was also one of our patented rotary valves on display beside the tank.

Another familiar face made an appearance at the Dairypower stand, the one and only Gareth Gault – better known as Donkey from the much loved Grassmen series!

It was great to have a chat with Gareth and hear what he has been getting up to in one of his busiest seasons of the year.

James Holding Dairy Engineering is a family business based in York, North Yorkshire, and have carried out many fantastic Dairypower installations over the years.

One in particular you might be familiar with, Tom Pemberton’s Smart Slurry Aeration System. This system was installed in his round slurry tank back in 2021. If you haven’t seen that video already, why not watch it now?

James Holding Dairy Engineering have also carried out some fantastic installations of our hydraulic yard scrapers over the years!
