NHS letters etched into field by North Antrim farmers

The Agricultural Machinery sales company Hunter Kane & Son have showed their support for the NHS in a rather unusual, but befitting way, given their type of business.

The company based in Ballintoy, took two of their farming machines – the Deutz-Fahr Agrotron 6165 and a Soilmaster Disc Cultivator – and etched their support in a field at the Kilmean Farm near the village, with the letters NHS.
