Timmy Rea farms 230 acres, along with his wife Karen and boys, Charlie 4 and James 3, between Larne and the Slemish Mountains in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Timmy runs 300 Blackface and crossbred ewes, finishing all his lambs. Additional store lambs are purchased to finish in the house with his own. As well as the sheep enterprise, they also have 110 cattle, made up of suckler cows, to a Charolais bull, and Holstein calves are reared to beef. They are also in the process of starting construction of a new free range egg unit. Timmy, who bought his raffle ticket at the Blackface stand at the NSA sheep event in Ballymena, said: “I was totally shocked and pleased to have won the Honda ATV, we have used Honda bikes for nearly 20 years now, with just two in that time, so due an upgrade!!” Wilsons of Rathkenny have strong business links with Honda and were delighted to present Timmy with his new ATV.

Congratulations to beef farmer Alan Kennedy from Larne who was the lucky winner of a new Isuzu D-Max Yukon, courteous of the annual Isuzu Competition.  Alan was selected randomly from thousands of entries with 9 other finalists for the live draw at Balmoral Show on the closing Friday, and was over the moon with his win.  Alan chose local Isuzu specialists Wilsons of Rathkenny in Ballymena to collect his prize, worth £25,500.  

"It still hasn't sunk in yet, thank you Isuzu NI! The pick-up is just wonderful and my wife and I are so pleased with this win" said Alan.


Alan is pictured receiving his Keys with his wife Joanne and 10 week old first-born Joshua, from Isuzu NI Dealer Relationship Manager Alastair Kerr and Farming Life's Martine Lafferty. Also pictured is Michael Turtle, Isuzu Sales Manager from Wilsons of Rathkenny and Managing Director John Wilson.


"It's a fantastic pick-up, Northern Ireland's best seller in fact, and a fully kitted top end workhorse" said Michael Turtle Isuzu Sales Manager at Wilsons "Isuzu sales in Northern Ireland are UP 69% year to date, and at Wilsons we've already set an all time best Isuzu annual sales figure - and we're not even at the half year yet.  The Isuzu D-Max is renowned for its 3.5 tonne towing ability and class-leading 125,000 mile/5 year warranty. Residual values are best in class, that means we can change customers on Contract Hire for example for £699 advance and 23 x £239 - that even includes road tax for two years.  Call in and try D-Max for yourself, you won't be disappointed.  UFU Members can also access the full D-Max Utility and Premium ranges on the UFU Affinity programme.  CVOTR prices start from just £17,249, so there's an Isuzu for every budget."
