The ‘Up to Speed’ Scheme offers three lucky beneficiaries the chance to win the loan of a New Holland machine for a full year and it is aimed at British farmers who could use the machine to develop their farming enterprise. The second year of the Scheme will be open in early 2021, so keep your eyes peeled for further updates.
