THERE will be a celebration of 20 years working together between Teagle Machinery and Sellars at this year's Royal Highland Show, June 21-24.

The story started in January, 1998, when Teagle shipped a Tomahawk 4040 drum feeder bedder to Sellars depot at Oldmeldrum – 20 years later both still enjoy a thriving working relationship and the Tomahawk remains one of the most consistent sellers.

Together, the trading relationship has delivered more than 500 units in the region. Teagle UK's Jim Squires said: “Sellars is one of our largest and longest standing trading accounts. It’s to the benefit of all stakeholders to have such a consistent and continuous source for machine support and back-up service over a long period of time. It reassures us, as the manufacturer and our loyal customers that Neil Wattie and his staff always provide a professional service 24/7 throughout the year.”

In recognition of this Teagle and Sellars have pledged to raise £1000 for the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET), the classroom learning charity.

The charity's Katrina Barclay added: “RHET work alongside farmers and growers in Scotland to host school groups on working farms for over 16,000 young people each year. Support from the industry like this donation will help keep the world class learning experience in agriculture going for all our young people.”

The money will be raised by securing signatures at the 2018 Royal Highland Show, when participants will sign their names on a Teagle bale processor for which £2 will be donated by the companies. A prize ticket for each signature will be issued and the winner will receive a bottle of the award winning,18-year old Glenfiddich.

The Teagle stand is No R244.
