Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO, is sponsoring The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) for the eighth successive year.
Among a range of activities, the farm machinery firm’s involvement is set to include support for the NFYFC Competitions Day at the Staffordshire Showground in July and celebration of National Young Farmers’ Week in the autumn. In addition, Massey Ferguson’s local Machinery Maintenance and Safety Workshops are available exclusively to members of YFCs, while the company also provides special offers on machinery finance deals and discounts on MF merchandise to members. The latest equipment finance deal, launched at the beginning of April for NFYFC members, features 0+3 annual payments at 0%.
“We are delighted to continue our backing for the NFYFC and support its excellent work with young people in the agricultural sector and rural communities,” remarks Lindsay Haddon, Massey Ferguson Advertising and Sales Promotion Manager. “Young people have the opportunity to make their mark on our vital industry and the NFYFC provides them with a strong voice. MF plays an active part in shaping the future of agriculture and is highly-focused on ensuring that this next generation of farmers meets the challenge of running profitable farming businesses in a sustainable environment.”
Commenting, James Eckley, Chief Officer of the NFYFC says: “It’s fantastic to have the support of Massey Ferguson towards our programme of work for rural young people. We are also impressed that the company is offering practical skills’ workshops that encourage young farmers to operate machinery safely. Working together, we can equip the next generation with the skills and confidence they need to succeed.”
