Local machinery supplier Louth Tractors will be hosting a special open day at Riseholme College (Showground Campus) on Monday April 3 to mark the Lincolnshire leg of Case IH’s national ‘Red Power Tour’ 2017.

The Red Power Day event will give members of the public the chance to see the latest agricultural products in action in the field, including the latest automated headland turning AFS system - the next step in tractor automation.

There will be talks from the team at Louth Tractors and Case IH throughout the day, as well as field trials and refreshments.

Stephen Melbourne, director of Louth Tractors, said: “Tech is moving on all the time in agriculture, so this is a great chance for people working in farming to come and see what’s new direct from the manufacturer - and more importantly, how it can help their business.

“We’re pleased to be holding this event with Riseholme College, as they train the next generation of farmers. The AFS technology takes us one step closer towards ‘driverless’ tractors, but right now it makes farmers’ and farm workers’ lives easier as we quickly move towards their busiest time of the year.

“We’re looking forward to showing people exactly how it works this Monday.”

• The event will be held between 10am-4pm. For more details, get in touch with the Louth Tractors office on 01507 605441 or email admin@louthtractors.co.uk.
