LOCAL farmers are looking forward to the return of a popular machinery show where new products, machinery and technology are set to be unveiled.
The Midlands Machinery Show is taking place on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 November at Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire.
More than 250 agricultural businesses are exhibiting at the event – organised by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society - which will not only give them the opportunity to discuss advances in their products and services, but also allow farmers to discover how such techniques can help to improve the productivity of their land.
