“The Massey Ferguson programme which formed part of the Scottish Association of Young Farmers’ Conference agenda was a brilliant example of manufacturer, dealer and customer coming together to inform and motivate future farmers,” says Hamish Brown, MF Area Sales Manager –Tractors.
During the conference weekend in Dundee, delegates visited the Stagison venison farm and the Massey Ferguson dealer in Cupar, Reekie Ltd, part of the Hamilton Ross Group.
Stagison at Downfield Farm is Scotland’s only field-to-fork venison enterprise and runs MF tractors to support its extensive business raising and butchering deer, Black Galloway cattle and Manx Loaghtan sheep. Delegates were able to learn about the farm’s sustainable practices and holistic approach to production.
Then it was onto a full roast lunch amidst the spare parts and farm supplies at Reekie’s newly-opened country store. This was followed by a tour of the premises and a look at some of the latest MF tractors, harvesting equipment and telehandlers.
MF dealer, Reekie laid on a delicious lunch for SAYFC conference delegates in its newly-opened country store.
“We hosted 62 delegates from all over Scotland - it was great to see the next generation coming along and getting involved,” said Sam Mercer, General Manager of Reekie Ltd. “With the topic of the conference highlighting sustainability, it’s good for everyone in the industry that our upcoming farmers are fully-focused on the future.”
