Harvest is all over for another year and autumn is upon us and that means it is time for ploughing matches up and down the East region. This year R.A.B.I have been present at the Greenstead Green Agricultural Ploughing Match held mid- September and the Bedfordshire YFC Ploughing Match held in early October. Both days were met with very autumnal weather!
Greenstead Green plough day in Braintree, Essex, had an array of different machinery, from new to old, and large demonstrators on display. The horses were out showing us all how plough used to be completed over the entries. You could also have a go yourself and see how straight your line was!
Bedfordshire YFC plough day in Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire, was another fantastic day with a display of old and new tractors and youngsters having a go. Despite a downpour in the middle of the day, it was an enjoyable day.
Thank you to all those that came to shelter in the R.A.B.I tent and find out more about what we do and to both organisations for having us on the day.
