Cereals 2012 at Boothby Graffoe, in Lincolnshire, proved another popular venue for farmers, interested in kit. The weather was, surprise surprise, a bit mixed, but the first day saw lots of folk braving the showers and Thursday was blessed with pretty nice sunshine.
It would be difficult to pick out a 'star' of the stand, as pretty well all of the Merlo machines received a lot of attention, from both existing users - several of which were on their third or fourth Merlo - and newcomers to the range. It was obvious that Merlo now ranks as a very serious competitor in UK farming and supports the increasing market share being taken by the product here.
Regional Manager, Paul Cater, commented that "Enquiry level was high and it was a pleasure to meet with so many very satisfied customers, who are now old friends!"
Shown at Cereals, for the first time in the UK, was a P38.10 Turbofarmer with the new Merlo CDC Dynamic Load Control system. M CDC is being gradually introduced across the whole Turbofarmer range during the summer period.
