FERGUSON enthusiasts from all over the Scotland and the North of England attended the annual Ferguson day, held at Willie Cruickshank’s West Mains Farm at Torthorwald, near Dumfries, last Sunday.

The event, organised by the Friends of Ferguson Heritage, was one of many held across the country to mark the 80th anniversary of the marque, and on display were Ferguson and Massey Ferguson tractors and implements used through the ages.

There was also a ploughing match, wherein Laura McQueen from Dumfries won the ladies section, before going on to win the Massey Ferguson section and the Ian McQueen Memorial Shield – which was established in memory of her husband.

John Johnstone from Gretna, the FFH co-ordinator for South West Scotland and Cumbria said: “It was a very successful day with a lot of people turning out. It was nice that Laura won the trophy which was presented in honour of her husband and she was delighted.”
