A year after first publishing a comprehensive listing of the UK's Biggest Farming Dealers ranked by turnover exclusively for the Farmers Weekly, I catch up again with freelance agricultural journalist Peter Hill to deep dive his latest report..
The original report published in 2022 was based on dealers' financials for 2020, the latest published a few weeks ago reflects the figures for 2021.
A total of 45 dealers make up the listing, all of whom have a turnover in excess of £30 million. 2021 appears to have been a recovery year following the impact of Covid with all dealers in the list showing increased turnover despite supply problems.
The reports once again vividly illustrates the on-going consolidation in the UK dealer network.
