Grant boosts Yorkshire ring

A RURAL Enterprise Scheme grant for £122,000 will help foster better co-operation between Yorkshire farmers.

The money pledged to the Ridings Machinery Ring over three years will help the group expand into North Yorkshire and the East Riding area. The group hopes to attract another 100 members.

RMR has 250 farmers who share machinery, skills and time, and as part of the grant it will assess its members needs to show farmers how they could make better use of the service. &#42
