Congratulations and well done to Vincent Kiernan, Muckerstaff, Coolarty, who has invented an apparatus which will make dosing animals a very easy job. Vincent is well known as a trailer builder and he has now invented the K O DOSER and he displayed his work at the Tullamore show where he was picked up by the Farmers Journal and they encouraged him to take his invention to the National Ploughing Championship which he did and there was great interest in it. The K O DOSER can be seen at work on Youtube or Donedeal by searching ‘KO Doser’ and all Vincent’s details are available there. We wish Vincent the very best with his invention and hope that the K O DOSER will be in big demand.
