In 2007 Alan foresaw the need for labour saving devices in the modern dairy farm. Alan Graham a dairy farmer himself, knew first-hand the importance of herd hygiene. As Alan also ran the dairy farm on his own he was acutely aware of the need to reduce the time and labour required to maintain the very highest dairy hygiene standards. With this in mind he set about looking for a solution to his problem. After months of research, interviews with other farmers and visits to trade shows around Europe, Alan selected the Danish made BOBMAN as the machine for his farm.
