Fun, Learning, and Achievement

Innovation and technology are a major focus of a new podcast series recorded as part of a joint venture between KUHN Farm Machinery and NFYFC.

Representatives from KUHN recorded the series with Meet the Farmer podcaster Ben Eagle and discuss topics such as innovation and changes in technology in the arable and livestock sectors. The final episode in this mini-series looks at career opportunities, and Ben chats to YFC members who have developed their careers with KUHN.

This is the second podcast series NFYFC has produced with KUHN – with the first series focused on regenerative farming and quality forage, as well as a discussion around careers.

The first episode in this latest series highlights changes in farming practices and innovation in technology in the arable sector. Representatives from KUHN, Non-inversion and Spraying Sales Specialist Rupert Greest and Area Sales Manager John Hulland, discuss the latest kit that KUHN is producing to help arable farmers and how they are connecting with customers through apps and even TikTok.

Speaking in the first episode, John Hulland explained what he thought arable farmers wanted. He said: “Technology has been embraced by customers and they are looking to make themselves more efficient, looking at their inputs and outputs. They are looking at more GPS and being more mindful of their fertiliser application and their spraying costs. They are making sure they are putting the right product, in the right place, at the right time.”

It is hoped that the podcast can be used by YFCs for club programming and prompt discussion between members about the issues they raise. NFYFC’s AGRI Chair Charlotte Garbutt said: “We’re pleased to be releasing another podcast series with the team at KUHN. These informative sessions offer invaluable insight to young farmers who are developing their careers.

“The episodes delve into the different technology available for farmers working in the arable or livestock sectors, as well as providing information on career opportunities.” The first podcast in this latest series can be listened to below and YFCs are encouraged to share with their members.
