Over 5,000 people gathered for the UK’s National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (NFYFC) Annual Convention – the Federation’s showcase event of the year.
Massey Ferguson was a key supporter providing sponsorship for both the Chairman’s Reception and the Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee (ARAC) Forum.
Attendance at the event, held in Blackpool, was the best in five years and up 500 on 2012.
The ARAC Forum was a major highlight and gave members the opportunity to contribute to an industry review on the future of farming. Among the panellists were Joris Baecke, President of the European Council of Young Farmers (CEJA) and David Fursdon, Chair of the Future Farming Review.
“We were delighted to support the NFYFC convention,” says Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Brand Development Manager who attended the event. “Massey Ferguson is strongly focused on the new generation of farmers who are embracing new opportunities, new ideas and transforming forever the way farming is both carried out and perceived. The vibrancy, passion and clear thinking of delegates were inspirational.”
Open to young people age 10 to 26, the NFYFC has over 25,000 members and 644 clubs throughout the UK.
