The Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show (YAMS) is still scheduled to take place on Wednesday 2nd February here at the York Auction Centre and preparations are well underway despite the current uncertainties surrounding Covid and the Omicron variant.
We are in consultation with the local authority to meet the government’s “Covid Passport Regulations” for holding large scale events but hope to be able to achieve agreement on an Event Management Plan that keeps everyone attending as safe as possible.
This will be the 8th annual show, and having missed out last year due to the national lockdown we are working hard to ensure this year’s show goes ahead with the right safety measures in place.
There have certainly been a lot of changes in agriculture and a lot to catch up on since the last show back in February 2020; coming out of the EU, new policies and legislation, phasing out of BPS and implementation of Environmental Land Management. Then there’s net zero targets, COP26, carbon sequestration and at the same time having to sustain profitability and make a living.
In the end it’s all about focusing on your own business and making it as efficient and profitable as possible and to achieve this there is no better place than YAMS to find out about all the advances in technology and equipment to assist in evaluating what will work best for your individual business. Now is certainly the right time to see what is on the market and discuss the options with experts in their field as there are so many grant schemes available to help fund improvements.
We will have a larger stand at the event to provide help and advice on the many changes taking place including all the various grant schemes covering new technology, animal welfare, woodland and much more. Also on BPS changes, the new Sustainable Farming Incentive and ELMS.
