The latest technical day, which will be held at the college’s machinery department, runs from 9am.

The speakers include Dr Andy Scarlett, who will be talking and demonstrating on agricultural trailer braking systems.

Other speakers include a representative from Parker Hydraulics, who will outline typical possible faults including cavitation, contamination and hose assembly headaches, and an expert on Vaderstad drills. This will include tips and hints on getting the best performance.

A leading engineer on electronic guidance systems, Carl Pitelen, of Ben Burgess & Co, will discuss developments in telematics, and other electronic systems on tractors.

Lunch is available at the college and the programme should end by 4pm.

Although the event is for Normac members, Chris Thomas, county organiser, will be more than happy to recruit on the day.

With the growing interest from students and staff at the college, it is also hoped to launch a new centre or ground.

Students will be able to enjoy all the benefits of being a member.
