Sponsor of Farm Manager of the Year
Claas believe it is important that everyone involved in Agriculture receives the recognition they deserve, and is delighted to sponsor the Farmers Weekly ‘Farm Manager of the Year” Award for the fifth consecutive year. Managing a farming business gets more challenging every year and yet many opportunities still exist to develop the business and improve performance further. The skills of a good farm manager are wide ranging, encompassing administration, practical farming, finance control and conservation, the role is extremely challenging and varied, and goes well beyond what the title itself suggests. Motivation and direction of the farm team is a crucial element in the success of a farming operation, and many of today’s farm managers display exceptional people management qualities. Recognising that it is people who make the real difference to a business, Claas continue to support the Farm Manager category to underline this belief.
It is 75 years since August Claas developed the first European combine harvester. Today the Claas name is synonymous with combines around the world; the Lexion 770 can clear in just 20 minutes what it took the first machine to do in one day.
