In early June Bruce and Hamish took the opportunity to visit our suppliers in Europe. Firstly was a quick stop at Househam in the UK to look at both the Spirit and Merlin, Househam’s new self propelled sprayer models. With a tour of both production facilities and a meet and greet with staff concluded it was time to let the boys loose in these new machines. We were provided with a large open field, which we used to test the operational features, comfort and driveability of these sprayers.
Onto Denmark and first stop was Heva in Nykobing Mors. Again the company has two locations close together. Product training was taken over two days and tours we conducted of both factories. We also meet some local farms and studied the way European farmers are growing Oil Seed Rape.
Finally to Bredal in Vejle Ost. Bredal currently operate from three locations with the biggest being their new production facility housing a new powder coating plant. Again product training was conducted over two days. We also visited the Test Hall operated by the University of Aarhus where we tested various fertiliser spreader configurations.

He-Va Export Manager Jen Iversen recently visited New Zealand and enjoyed attending the Southern Field Days (15-17 February 2012). The event was a great success and Jens enjoyed gaining an insight into the lives of New Zealand farmers. After setting up for the event and spending a day out in the hot Southland sun, the team enjoy a well earned refreshment.
Andrews Transport recently added a Bredal to their fleet of fertiliser trucks. They kindly loaned the machine out for the weekend, enabling a Bredal display at the Southern Field Days. The EuroAgri team and Jens Iversen enjoyed a meal with Andrews Transport General Manager, Keith Johnston, and Bulk and General Cartage Manager, Dave Duffy.
In July 2010, we were privileged to have the franchise owners of Bredal – Anders Buhl Managing Director & Torben Soriensen Testing/Development Manager of Denmark. Euro Agri’s General James McCloy, said it was an excellent opportunity for Anders & Torbin to meet directly with the end user of their product and discuss New Zealand’s farming principles. The on-farm visits were greatly enjoyed by both farmers & contractors alike. We look forward to meeting with them again soon.
Fantastic weather and a buzzing atmosphere all made for a very successful Fieldays.
