More than 10,000 farmers, construction workers, professional groundsmen, greenkeepers, arborists and tractor enthusiasts descended on Ulting, near Maldon, for the 56th Annual Doe Show.
The event, which took place over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of last week at machinery dealer Ernest Doe & Sons Limited’s headquarters, included displays of the latest farm machinery.
“We were blessed with unseasonably mild weather. It certainly helped to draw the crowds out, said boss Colin Doe.
“This year we introduced a new layout, which seemed to be very well received.
“I was particularly pleased with the attendance, the great atmosphere to the show and, given current grain prices, pleasantly surprised with the level of orders that came in over the three days,” he added.
