I assume you mean the new drill ????????
I suspect most sensible folks will reject the idea of buying a £120k drill, and coupling it to a £150k tractor, just to plant some seeds as utter madness. Influenced, I am not......
well it seems to work for us - it's all relative to workload and farming system, I expect that expensive set up will be establishing crops cheaper than most
unfortunately however I still very much have to pay for my tractors and equipment so no free drills or Fendts here
If I were Michael Horsch, I'd be telling your local dealer to keep you sweet since you seem to be buying a few of their products recently
I can see the merits if said equipment can be proved to be streets ahead of others, but seriously, does someone buy a product just because someone else has ? Keeping up with the Joneses ? Can't see it myself.
Bet it happens more than we realise, but I guess that's the point, it's subliminal advertising. Adam Henson is usually seen either with a new JCB or New Holland or an IAE race when working with animals, and the branding
is always prominent. Gareth Wyn Jones does quite a bit with Honda and possibly Isuzu I think, and his pickup was very prominent the other night on the Royal Welsh programme. Tom Young is brand ambassador for Stihl.
Over on Twitter Chas Sutcliffe is always posting about his Spreadabale and Allflex. Ian Dicko is always on about Land Rover and Barbour. I've no idea if they get anything out of of it though. And I bet the very famous ones like Red Shepherdess, Yorkshire Shepherdess or JR Strickley are inundated with sponsorship/endorsement opportunities.
Maybe I should have posted more about our new handling system, Batemans might have sent us some more free stuff rather than a couple of hats
