The Machinery Ring Association of England and Wales (MRA) is the umbrella body representing the interests of nine machinery rings operating across England & Wales as cooperative associations, undertaking a range of activities intended to serve the commercial interests of the farming community and their land management activities.

By cooperative use of time and resources each ring acts as a management broker to it's members, in order that their capital intensive plant and equipment may be utilised in the most cost effective manner.

Current ring membership covers all sectors of agriculture and all holding sizes from commercial smallholder to institutional farming companies. Additionally ring membership covers all businesses and trades-people involved in agriculture including:

●     Farmers / Farming Contractors  
●     Machinery Hire Companies  
●     Commodity Suppliers  
●     Self Employed Labour  
●     Labour Agencies and many others

The effectiveness of the rings relies heavily on this healthy and varied membership profile, capable of effectively providing machinery, skills and labour.

The MRA assists rings in several areas, including promotion, marketing and representing their interests and those of their members both at National and European level.

Additionally the MRA is able to assist in the setting up of new rings where there is a geographical need.
