Massey Ferguson in Gold Partnership with Young Farmers in Wales

Massey Ferguson is further increasing its support for the new generation farmers as a Gold Corporate Sponsor of The Wales Federation of Young Farmers Clubs.

The partnership kicks off at the Royal Welsh Show (24-27 July) with a variety of activities including the display of an MF tractor on the Wales YFC stand and a prize competition for visitors.

“It’s a great pleasure to be collaborating with Wales YFC and helping the Federation develop its support and activities for members,” says Lindsay Haddon, Massey Ferguson Advertising and Sales Promotion Manager. “MF is creating a new generation of machinery and services for the new generation of farmers whose energy and skills are vital to the future of agriculture. Now more than ever, it is essential to encourage and nurture our upcoming farming professionals. We are looking forward to planning an active year with Wales YFC when we hope to spend time with members, involve local MF Dealers and introduce the Welsh club to the world of Massey Ferguson.”

Wales YFC Chairman Arwel Jones commented: “We are delighted that Massey Ferguson has become a corporate sponsor of the Federation here in Wales. We very much look forward to developing our partnership together and highlighting to young people the work of Massey Ferguson in Wales."

Massey Ferguson offers a full-line of products including tractors, combine harvesters, balers, Hay & Forage tools and materials handling equipment. The brand is a highly- active supporter of young enterprise in agriculture and is a partner of CEJA, the European Council of Young Farmers. It also works with the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs in England, the Scottish Association of Young Farmers’ Clubs, the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster and Macra na Feirme, the Young Farmers’ organisation in Ireland.
