Young farmers from across Europe converged on the UK’s Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire to discuss the impact of potential trade and policy changes post Brexit.
Supported by Massey Ferguson and the Crop Protection Association, the two-day seminar was organised by The National Federation of Young Farmer’s Clubs (NFYFC) and the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) Next Generation Forum.
Visitors included members of the European Council of Young Farmers (CEJA), of which Massey Ferguson is also a key partner.
“In these times of change, it is of paramount importance that we keep an open dialogue among young and future farmers across Europe,” said CEJA President Jannes Maes. “British young farmers have been longstanding and valued members of CEJA and we look forward to continuing this fruitful collaboration, regardless of what Brexit might bring.”
Massey Ferguson’s Campbell Scott, Director Marketing Services Europe and Middle East who attended the conference commented: “Massey Ferguson is fully-focused on the requirements of the new generation of farmers and promoting the growth of their farming businesses. As a principal partner of CEJA and a sponsor of the Young Farmers movement in the UK and Eire, we were very pleased to support this collaborative discussion forum.”
