Local farmer contractor and renowned ploughman Mike
Holloway talks to us about his NEW Grass Rejuvenator....
Mike has been a loyal customer at R V W Pugh since the early 80s with one of his first purchases
being a Lamborghini tractor.
Over the years he has bought most of his farm machinery from R V W Pugh which includes several OPICO machines. It’s been some ten years since he bought his HE-VA front press from OPICO Territory Manager Nick Rider supplied through R V W Pugh.
Mike also has an OPICO Grain dryer on the farm to add to his machinery collection. Nick confirmed it was when Mike went to the Royal Welsh show in 2015 and walked onto their OPICO stand he was introduced to what was to be his next purchase of yet more OPICO machinery - the HE-VA Grass Rejuvenator!
Nick commented, this has been developed by OPICO in conjunction with HE-VA in Denmark and is fitted with the OPICO Air 8 electronic seeder, it consists of an aggressive levelling board and two rows of tines and extremely aggressive star rings ensuring a good tilth for seed. To establish this it is the perfect bit of machinery for over seeding or doing a full reseed.
Mike points out “ The HE-VA Grass Rejuvenator offers a cost effective and quick turnaround result for giving new and prolonged life to existing ley; this means that farmers can have their ley back into production sooner, rather than ploughing, which in some instances can be inconvenient at certain times”
Mike said. “The Royal Welsh Show was a fantastic ‘Shop Window’ for upcoming products and demonstrations, and I look forward to seeing RVW Pugh at this year’s show in July”
