Massey Ferguson marked the 50th anniversary of its inauguration at a celebratory event held at its European headquarters in France last week.

The highlight of the event, designed to relaunch the brand to its network of dealers and distributors, was the unveiling of a 365hp tractor (pictured) featuring a radical new design for the company.
