Simon has worked at ADF Milking since October 2010 and has worked in the dairy industry all of his career, since he was 16. He has experience in roles including Technical Support Engineer, Installation Manager and Production Manager. Simon is an expert in the benefits of the ADF System, cow health and the dairy industry as a whole.
Sam is our Sales Executive for the South of the UK. His whole life has revolved around farming – he grew up on his family beef farm and began working on dairy farms when he was just 15 years old. He was a member of his local Young Farmers club for many years and enjoys socialising with dairy farmers in his area.
Sam’s passion for dairy farming took him half way across the world when he worked on a dairy farm in New Zealand for a year. He’s worked on countless farms as a relief milker and has worked as a full time milker on three dairy farms during his career. His last position was technical sales advisor for a small agricultural company before joining the ADF Milking team.
Sam has always found dairy farming very rewarding. “It is about the longevity of the cow and giving them a great life. I know some small family farms that have cows who are 10 or 11 years old because the farmers looked after them so well. Dairy farming is about love, care and time – something that automatic dipping and flushing can help with.”
What Sam admires most about the ADF System is the way it can improve udder health, which improves the cow’s overall health. “This leads to a more productive and efficient animal. I enjoy helping farmers improve their milking routines with the ADF System,” says Sam.
Hannah-Louise Ormerod is our Sales Executive for the North of the UK.
Hannah-Louise grew up on her family’s Pedigree Beef and Sheep farm. She studied at Agricultural University before becoming a dairy farm manager. Later Hannah-Louise studied for a Veterinary RSQP. Her work focussed on Agricultural Nutrition mostly aimed at maximum performance production on dairy and beef farms by analysing different farm samples such as soil, silage, FYM and milk.
During her previous roles, Hannah-Louise realised that there was a missing link – no matter how much research goes into a dairy farm, a mastitic cow is always a loss. “This was almost always due to bad hygiene or incorrect spray coverage. With ADF, we have the solution for farmers which will not only combat mastitis and somatic cell count, but will also speed up the whole milking process whilst saving money,” she says.
Hannah-Louise believes the best selling point of the ADF System is that it completely eradicates the need to manually spray a cow’s teats. “Spraying a cow after milking is a necessity to protect the cow whilst her udder is in its most porous and susceptible state to mastitis causing bacteria. I know from experience that unfortunately the after milking spraying of the cow is very rarely done correctly. The ADF System with its 360 degree injector spray coverage protects the cow instantly, whilst speeding up the process too!”
James is the Director and Founder of ADF Milking and he has worked in the dairy industry all of his career. In 2003, he had the idea for an automatic dipping and flushing system for milking parlours – and the rest is history! His brilliant ideas and engineer knowledge led him to develop the product that we produce today.
James has a huge passion for the dairy industry and is an expert on; calmer milking, somatic cell count, milk quality, efficiency and proactive udder health.
