In 1966, 

Bob Bowlin began his long, successful engineering career specializing in unique design/build projects for the food processing industries.

With fathers such as Erv Zuber and Joe Bowlin, Bob and Loene were born into the business of providing equipment to processors. As early as 1960, after graduating from Rice University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, one of Bob's first projects was designing and building the first self-supporting meat rails for use with the new lightweight foam coolers.

Other early projects completed by Bowlin included the first cattle knocking pen with head restraint, drop bottom hog traps, scalder dehairers, the elevating offal car, and an explosive sizing process to build stainless stuffer tanks.

During the following decade, he built meat plants across Texas, including plants at several university meat labs such as Sul Rose State and Tarleton State University. The best known Bowlin designed along with his father-in-law, Erv, was Fischer's Meat Market in Muenster, Texas. The Fischer Meat Plant, completed in 1972,

was the first federally approved small meat plant in the country. Following the plant's completion, Bob and Erv produced the film, Federal Procedures for Slaughtering in Small Plants, which became the USDA training film for all USDA inspectors.
