LAMMA visit shows Hartpury students the future of farming

Hartpury’s agriculture and land-based students got the chance to see the future of farming at the recent LAMMA show in Peterborough.

The event, held annually in January, is free to attend and regularly attracts up to 40,000 farmers from across the country and overseas.

As the UK’s largest farm machinery, equipment and agriculture services show, it was the perfect opportunity for the Hartpury students to experience the latest technology and the wide range of manufacturers and businesses that support the industry.

LAMMA was established in 1982 by a small group of local agricultural equipment manufacturers from across Lincolnshire. The first event was held at the Lincolnshire Showground, with some 50 exhibitors displaying their products at the show.
