An ABM competition sponsored by Massey Fergusson, as part of their continued support for the Red Tractor logo has announced a winner for a ride in a hot air balloon.

Beating over 500 entries was David Crackles, an assured beef and lamb farmer from Carnforth, Lancashire. Mr Crackles and his wife are delighted at the win and said “We joined ABM to get greater recognition in markets and to show that we maintain good levels of welfare and winning this through being a member is fantastic.”

The runner-up receiving £150 in Farm Stay UK vouchers was Yorkshire Haulier, M and E Hall.
