About 150 farmers from across Marlborough attended the launch of two new John Deere tractors at Gordon Handy Machinery in Blenheim last Wednesday night.
John Deere specialists from Australia and New Zealand gave presentations on the new tractor models, starting at $75,000, and provided expert advice to the vineyard, sheep and beef farmers.
They also had the opportunity to see the new John Deere off-road utility vehicle at the launch ceremony.
Gordon Handy Machinery Tasman area manager Darrin Wood said he was surprised by the huge turnout.
