In the 1950s turkey farmer Eddie Velo approached the Keller brothers with a need for a self-propelled loader small enough to clean around the barn’s upright poles. In 1957, the Kellers invented the precursor to the modern skid-steer loader. In this Artifact Spotlight Chris Schuelke of The Otter Tail County Historical Society shares with us the history behind the first Bobcat.
