A model has brushed off disapproval that her illusion at an farm machinery see was “outdated”.

At the Lamma show in Birmingham, agricultural firm Agrifac fostered tourists to get selfies with glamorous commerce demonstrate prototypes at their stand.

One of the women, Melissa Sharp, said she had a “great time” – said her role at the occurrence was “harmless”.

However some objected, including estate manager David Hill, who told the BBC it felt “like a backward step”.

Speaking to Radio 4’s Farming Today Mr Hill, “whos not” at the phenomenon, said: “A lot of women are wanting to be recognised for their contribution to the industry and want to be taken seriously in a previously male-dominated industry.”
