A pink-painted grain dryer is raising money for charity – thanks to East Anglian crop handling and drying specialists Master Farm Services.

Usually painted red, Pedrotti Master Dryers can handle wheat, barley, oilseed rape, maize, beans and peas – among other combinable crops. The Italian company has agreed to paint one of its mobile dryers pink – and profits will be donated to Breast Cancer UK.

Pedrotti manufactures a large range of mobile dryers for farmers and contractors. With a strong track record, all are designed to meet today’s stringent drying requirements and incorporate  CE safety features.

Good cause

“We painted a few driers black for our 40th anniversary in 2018 – and we wanted to do something different again this year,” said Master Farm Services managing director Garry Ingram. “So we asked Pedrotti if they would help us raise money for breast cancer.

“We’re potentially talking about thousands of pounds for charity – and most people know someone affected by breast cancer, whether its in your family or a friend. Pedrotti were only too happy to help.”

With 15 basic capacities and specifications to meet individual requirements, the Pedrotti Master Dryer is suitable for most applications – with retractable screen (RS) models offering complete mobility from farm to farm.

The pink dryer will be on display when Master Farm Services hosts its own open days on 6-7 March at Bures Park, Bures, Suffolk. All mobile dryers sold on either day will be discounted by £1000, said Mr Ingram.

But the open days are not just about selling dryers.  It will be a social event and will include food and drink – as well as fun activities, including axe-throwing, archery and airsoft target shooting. “  Everyone is welcome and hopefully we can make a difference to a worthy charity organisation.
