There is a simple explanation for all of this. The number of farm businesses right across Europe (forget the global market for a moment) is getting ever smaller; so fewer end users means that not all manufacturers and distribution channels can survive. They have to adjust to meet the end user market place. It's the same for supply industries outside the machinery business and even the exhibitions and shows etc, it affects everyone in the industry one way or another. This trend will continue and there will likely be many changes so don't be surprised about anything over the coming weeks, months and years. Forget about rumours, just comment on the facts.
