As a newly-announced partner of CEJA (the European Council of Young Farmers), Massey Ferguson met Matteo Bartolini, CEJA President last week to discuss joint projects for the coming year.
The meeting was hosted by Trelleborg, the wheel systems manufacturer, at its facility in Tivoli, Rome.
“We had extremely productive talks and are looking forward to implementing a range of joint activities at international, regional and local level,” said Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Director Sales Engineering and Brand Development.
One initiative will see the establishment of a new pan-European award scheme – CEJA Ambassadors – recognising the achievements of innovative young farmers. In addition, CEJA will participate in key Massey Ferguson events such as the Vision of the Future to be held in France in August 2014. Massey Ferguson will also provide keynote speakers at CEJA events and support the organisation in its communications activities.
CEJA represents around 1.7 million young farmers across Europe and has a primary goal to encourage young people into farming.
