Donington farmer Chris Wray joined the Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday to help get across the message that farming is a modern and futuristic industry.
Chris was one of five young farmers – the epitome of modern farming – to join the London parade with the NFU, John Deere and the Worshipful Company of Farmers.
Chris, the NFU’s county vice-chairman for Holland (Lincs), will be helping to demonstrate how farming has transformed itself into a modern, forward-thinking industry and adopting cutting-edge technology.
That is contrary to the view of the majority of adults surveyed in a YouGov poll – only 43 per cent considered the industry to be high-tech.
Chris is an arable farmer and co-operatively farms 2,000 acres with two neighbours.
