An exciting new farming event promises to showcase the latest machinery, products, developments, support and advice when it debuts at the Newbury Showground on Wednesday 15 November, 8am-4pm.

The Southern Counties Farming & Machinery Show promises to provide “inspiration and support” for the region’s farmers at the free-to-enter, one-day event.

Creators Kelsey Media, publishers of top UK farming magazines including South East Farmer, Agricultural Trader, Profi, Farm Machinery, Crop Protection Magazine and Vineyard have ensured the show falls outside agriculture’s high-pressured spring, summer and harvest seasons. It’s easily accessible and benefits from the showground’s excellent facilities.

The show will bring together premier agricultural manufacturers, suppliers, dealers and distributors for a day packed with live demonstrations, advice and seminars, all for free!

When keeping on top of new equipment, services, innovations and regulations, advice and contacts can make the difference between loss, survival and profit, this is an unmissable event. The one-day show is set to be a valuable networking event for everyone involved in farming, agricultural transport, contracting and farming-related activities across the South of England and beyond.

Showcasing agricultural companies large and small, the show is sponsored by Samagri Ltd, sole UK importers of the Virkar direct drill range. Further confirmed exhibitors so far include Väderstad, Kuhn, Haynes, John Day Engineering, Farol, Aitchison Agri, Lister Wilder, Chandlers, Openfield, Agrifac, OMEX and many more too numerous to list. 

The show will include live demos of tractor loaders and telehandlers and include examples from New Holland, John Deere, JCB, Claas, Kubota and potentially others from Massey Ferguson, Valtra and Fendt. 

Several hundred lots, including tractors, will give showgoers the opportunity to pick up a bargain or a sought-after item at the show’s live auction – or earn some cash. 

“Buyer or seller, it’s the perfect opportunity to trade machinery at the end of the season,” said Paul Heard, of hosts Symonds & Sampson’s dedicated agricultural auctioneers.

The show will also provide a welcome opportunity for attendees to network, chat, make contacts and share information, invaluable when tighter belts and longer hours are causing many in the sector to feel isolated. 

Topics on the agenda at dynamic and thought-provoking seminars throughout the day will include grain marketing post-CAP, red diesel rules, crop nutrition and agricultural robotics.
