Machinery Team Members

Kelvin Sloper

Machinery Specialist

I have worked in agricultural supply and merchanting throughout my career, building up an extensive knowledge of the industry.

Before joining AF, I worked for a long-established machinery dealership undertaking a diverse role with responsibility for sales, purchasing and finance.  Prior to this, I spent time with an importer of agricultural implements and also worked for a large multi-national company as well as spending several years with an agricultural co-operative.


I now enjoy using the knowledge and experience I have gained to procure machinery products for AF members.

I use my experience to use the best methods and networks to procure vehicles for AF Members.

I have nine years of experience in the vehicles role at AF, over which time I have built up an extensive and in-depth knowledge of the vehicle industry, developing the best methods and numerous contacts to procure vehicles for AF Members. Previous to my time at AF, I worked in the buying office of a plastics manufacturer, so have been in purchasing roles for the whole of my working life.


Jill Roberson

Machinery Specialist

I enjoy the pace and variety of conversations with Members to help their businesses.

I have been involved in the agricultural industry one way or another for over 30 years. I ran my own independent retail business for 10 years and have extensive administration and customer experience. Outside of work I’m an eco-blogger and keen gardener.

Robert Dunham

Machinery Procurement Manager

I have always had an interest for understanding all things mechanical and enjoy the procurement of farm machinery for Members.

Before joining AF, I ran my own business as a registered firearms dealer and gunsmith so I have always been involved with the farming community. It was a great opportunity to come to AF as a machinery specialist. Out of work I run and show a classic Jaguar and have over the years owned and refurbished various Land Rovers etc.
