In 2014 the EGF is 50 years old. To celebrate this important event the 25th General Meeting of the EGF, with the theme 'EGF at 50: the future of European Grasslands' was held in Aberystwyth, Wales, U.K. from 7 - 11 September 2014.

HALDRUP was a proud sponsor of this event dedicated to grass research and we would like to thank to all organizations, speakers and visitors of this meeting for the very warm welcome in Wales.

A special thank you goes to the participants of the Mid-Conference Tours who had a chance to see HALDRUP GRASS HARVESTER F-55 in usage at grass and clover plots of IBERS Aberystwyth University.

HALDRUP grass harvester made the grass and forage research all over the world more efficient and less time consuming and is produced already since 1972. The newest grass harvesters are equipped with air conditioned cabin with sufficient space for 2 operators, sample taking, weighing system and in most cases also with NIRS Near Infrared Spectroscopy for analyzing parameters such as dry matter or protein content. The video of HALDRUP F-55 grass harvester made at IBERS Aberystwyth University can be seen here.

One of the speakers from IBERS Aberystwyth University Alan Lovatt will give a presentation about his experience with HALDRUP F-55 grass harvester and usage of NIRS Near Infrared Spectroscopy also during HALDRUP open days on 2 -3rd December in Ilshofen, Germany.
