An Italian slurry tanker made its Australian debut at a field day near Kingaroy on Friday.
The first FB Bossini tanker to be imported Down Under was unveiled to a crowd of machinery lovers, growers, feedlotters, agronomists, retailers and friends at the Oz Value AG and Youngs Farm showcase at Wooroolin.
Property owners Mark and Sharon Young ordered the custom 30,000 litre tanker to spread pig manure from their 8000 SPU piggery on paddocks which produce peanuts, wheat, oats and other crops.
The new machine has helped reduce buildup in the effluent ponds and saved them money on synthetic fertilisers.
