NORMAC Cultivations Demonstration 2016
We are delighted to announce that again this year we will be staging the NORMAC Cultivations Demonstration.
By the kind generosity of Mr William Edwards, we will be at Hardingham Farms near Wymondham on Thursday 8th September.
As always there will be a huge display of working agricultural machinery, large tractors, sprayers and ancillary equipment all associated with a modern arable farm.
All the manufacturers will be there, together with their local dealers and representatives. Machinery there will include many forms of ploughs and cultivation machinery in a wide variety of styles and sizes, seed drills, sprayers and hedge-cutters as well as all the latest in tractors to pull them.
On the static stand section there will be a wide variety of equipment and services offered to the modern farm. Everything from steel buildings to computer software.
This huge site covers over 200 acres, but to help you get around to see everything, a fleet of tractor drawn "buses" will be operating all day all over the site.
We expect upwards of 4000 visitors during the day. The day is free to anyone with free car parking as well.
Look out for advertising in the press nearer the time with all the latest news, together with our Facebook page.
If you are involved with land based machinery, either in farming, grounds care, amenity or construction, whether a driver, mechanic, foreman, or just interested in machinery, then NORMAC is for you ! Mechanised farming is changing all the time, no more so than today. By being a member of NORMAC you will keep up to date with the many changes as they happen.
Monthly Winter Meetings
There are 10 NORMAC centres around the county, and each arrange monthly events through the autumn, winter and spring, then guest speakers, mostly from manufacturers give talks on the latest ideas, new machines, and how to get the best of them, and new techniques involved.
Most centres arrange two or three visits annually, either to local manufacturers or dealers in the evening, or to large manufacturing plants for the day during the summer months. Many centres arrange walks during the summer as well.
NORMAC arranges the biennal Cultivations Demonstration, which has grown over the years to become one of the largest events of its kind in the country. NORMAC also hosts the Norfolk County Ploughing Match, as well as individual centres organising their own matches each year.
The 8 NORMAC centres are at Dereham, Diss, Docking, Holt, Loddon, North Walsham, Swaffham and Wymondham, so there is one near you wherever you are in Norfolk. These centres meet regularly between October and April, have their own chairman and committee and make their own programme.
The club magazine TOP LINK is sent free to all members. It contains machinery news, technical articles and details of all NORMAC meetings and events.
NORMAC introductory subscription is only £12.50 a year, due on October 1st. Members are welcome to attend meetings at any of the NORMAC centres.
