It’s a great opportunity to show the public the wide range of quality products and services available from us and introduce them to the MST brand. It gives us chance to reaffirm our position as one of the South West’s premier Agricultural dealerships and to show our commitment to the future of farming. The future of agriculture is incredibly important to us and that’s why we are proud to remain as the main sponsor of Devon Young Farmers club who also exhibited at the show.’
