Kubota and Clarkes of Cavan support Ballyhaise College
Kubota UK and local dealer Clarkes of Cavan have joined forces to lend their support to Tegaasc Ballyhaise College – one of Ireland’s leading providers of educational courses in agriculture and forestry.
The two companies are working in partnership to sponsor machinery that is being used around the 220 hectare estate, located 8km north of the county town of Cavan.
Kubota’s M110GX-II agricultural tractor is being used by the college for general farm work. The farm at Ballyhaise consists of a number of enterprises such as a 120 cow dairy herd, a 50 suckler cow herd, a 200 ewe sheep flock and 200 cattle of various breeds. The Kubota M110GX carries out slurry spreading, topping and mowing, along with a host of other jobs in the day-to-day running of the farm.
Two rugged Kubota RTV utility vehicles are also making getting around the estate much more effective for farm duties, like transporting the maintenance team across the farm terrain and materials and kit for farm upkeep. In addition, Kubota’s market leading B3030 compact tractor is being used to keep three acres of college lawns in immaculate condition.
John Delaney, technical officer at Ballyhaise College, who has worked at the educational institute for 37 years, commented: “We are delighted that the college is being supported by our local machinery dealer Clarkes of Cavan and the partnership we have developed with them and Kubota. Kubota machinery is renowned as the most reliable on the market so its great we get use their market leading equipment for campus upkeep and for farming operations. The quality of the machinery is second to none and this is backed up with first class service and support from Clarkes of Cavan.”
Ballyhaise College is recognised as one of the leading agricultural and forestry colleges in Ireland, welcoming 350 new students each year and 1000 students in total.
Kevin Pryce, Kubota’s agricultural dealer manager for Ireland, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be joining forces with Ballyhaise College. By working in partnership with such a prestigious educational institute, it enables us to support the college and helps us build the profile of the brand with the next generation of people that will be entering the agricultural and forestry industries.”Back to articles list
