Farm machinery auctioneer Cheffins will be giving visitors to next month’s LAMMA show a chance to get their hands on an agricultural classic that is set to take on the best in the world.

Cheffins will be offering the chance to win a Massey Ferguson 135 tractor with a Ransomes plough and a Graham Edwards trailer which are valued at more than £7,000 and have been fully restored with a eye to the 2016 World Ploughing Championships at Crockey Hill, near York.

Cambridge-based Cheffins, whose eight offices also include branches in Newmarket, Haverhill, Saffron Walden and Ely, has sponsored the entry and is giving people the chance to take it home once the competition is over.

The tractor, trailer and plough will be on the Cheffins stand, B11, throughout LAMMA, billed at the UK’s largest agricultural machinery, equipment and services show, which takes place on January 21 and 22 at the East of England Showground in Peterborough.

Tickets to enter the competition are £1 and the draw for the winner will be made at the World Ploughing Championship between September 8 and 11, 2016.

There will also be other chances to enter at Cheffins’ Cambridge Vintage Sales in April, July and October.
