Long wet winters had been causing problems for Stephen James, the new Welsh NFU president, at his 500 acre dairy farm in Pembrokeshire.

He needed extra storage capacity in his slurry tank, and was also keen to improve comfort for his herd of 270 cows, knowing that this could lead in turn to better milk yields.

Croom was able to improve both capacity and comfort by designing, manufacturing, and installing an extra-deep tank, and cow cubicles with a specially-adapted surface.
