Massey Ferguson’s Convention Message: “There’s something for everyone!”

Massey Ferguson’s Convention Message: “There’s something for everyone!”

Massey Ferguson is encouraging Young Farmers to make the most of every minute of this year’s Annual Convention. The tractor giants have been officially unveiled as the headline sponsor of NFYFC’s 2015 Annual Convention, which takes place in Torquay from 24-26 April.

It is the third year in a row that Massey Ferguson has sponsored the event. Their sponsorship of this event, generally considered the biggest event in the NFYFC calendar, further emphasises the company’s active support for the next generation of farmers.

Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson’s director of sales, engineering and brand development, said: “Massey Ferguson has always been very interested in the issues and concerns facing the farmers of the future. We decided a few years ago to make that more than just a passing interest and formalise an arrangement and partnership with Young Farmers.”

Campbell (pictured right) said that he was particularly looking forward to this year’s AGRI Forum, where the theme is “What is your future in farming?”

In response to that question, Campbell said: “For anybody involved in the farming industry, including ourselves, the future looks bright. Having said that, there is a huge raft of economic, political, technological and social challenges facing Young Farmers at the moment. We need the brightest, most enthusiastic and committed people to address those challenges, so that the bright future, that we all believe is possible, will actually happen.”

Campbell had one prevailing piece of advice for all Young Farmers attending Convention.

“There is something for everyone. The overriding rule is ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’! This is a social occasion. It’s an opportunity to meet like-minded people from across the country and start building up relationships and friendships that can last for a lifetime. But there is also definitely an opportunity to study and listen to what is going on in the world of farming.

“You don’t need to agree with everything that you hear, but when you go back to your own farm, you can reflect on what you’ve picked up and see how you can apply it to your own operation.”

As part of Massey Ferguson’s sponsorship deal, they are giving away a pair of tickets to the exclusive Massey Ferguson Lounge to one lucky individual. To be in with a chance of winning these tickets, all you need to do is correctly answer the following question:

“Where did Massey Ferguson send one of its tractors on an expedition to in December 2014?”

Simply send your answer, along with your name and the name of your club to magazine@nfyfc.org.uk. Entrants must also provide the name, club and email address of the Young Farmer who they would like to accompany them.

This competition is only open to YFC members who have weekend tickets for the Annual Convention in Torquay. The tickets are valid for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night of Convention from 9:00pm-2:00am. The winner will be selected at random on Friday 17th April.
