In the UK, the agricultural industry is worth nearly £10billion annually to the country’s economy and utilises 69% of the total land area of the island nations. Employing 1.5% of the country’s population, in total the agricultural industry produces nearly 60% of the food that the UK consumes.

Whilst agricultural activities occur on most rural location, the majority of the UK’s industry is based in East Anglia and the South west, producing crops and livestock respectively. In total there are over 210,000 farms in the UK with an average size of 81 hectares (actual sizes range from around 20 to over 100 hectares).

The agricultural industry within the UK is vast, containing over 30million sheep, nearly 5million pigs and 1.9million dairy cows. This intense amount of livestock means farmers are now investing in newer, more modern equipment to maintain the industry flow. With numerous agricultural auctions being conducted on a monthly basis, customers now have access to affordable resources such as tractors, trailers, combine harvesters, cultivators, milking equipment, plant equipment and various other farming machinery.
