Ivor Davey trained as an Animal Scientist, specialising in Agriculture. From 2000 to 2015, Ivor worked for Wilson Agriculture and was fundamental in establishing the Wilson brand throughout the UK and Europe. CowPlan was set up in 2014, and fully trading in April 2015 when Ivor Davey left Wilson Ag and started working with CowPlan full time.
Ivor has been known for his creative building designs and attention to detail for a long time. The focus on what the business needs now, and where it will be in the future has been key to long term planning. Ivor puts the customer first, and works with the farm's existing and future needs for all plans. This has helped many UK dairy farmers consider renovating existing buildings, or new builds.
Over the years, Ivor has developed a passion for robotic milk units, and is well known with the major manufacturers for designing buildings for all milk robot options. This has lead to being a regular speaker at 'Robot Planning Seminars' throughout the UK, and speaking at other events such as RIDBA open days, the national UK Dairy day and many open farm events.
CowPlan are expanding the staff team, and recently we have employed CAD specialist and sales and support staff to help build the business. With these team members and Ivor's guidance we can help you by simply supplying great cubicle and/or mattress systems, or look at a variety of designs for new buildings. Alternatively, a full buildings review may be required in order to create a long term business infrastructure strategy.
