Today’s calves are tomorrow’s high performance cows
Anyone in pursuit of a sustainable cow with a high lifetime production must first optimize rearing of young cattle. The Lely Calm automatic calf feeder guarantees optimal growth and development of these young animals. Calves can still enjoy their natural behaviour and drink whenever they want, in a controlled way, while labour is reduced to the bare minimum. After all, today’s calves are tomorrow’s high performance cows.
The Lely principle
A customer expects not only the delivery of hardware from his supplier, but also an appropriate range of products plus advice. Lely Consumables, the specialist in consumer goods and advice for dairy farmers, therefore strives for a total concept for rearing young stock: the Lely Caltive Concept. Installation, maintenance, adjustments, calibration, rearing advice and a complete assortment of calf milk and calf concentrates have been bundled - together with the Lely Calm automatic calf feeder - in one single concept.
More profit with the Lely Caltive Concept
Rearing young stock should become more efficient and effective. In addition, time and money need to be saved. It is therefore not a matter of “rearing against each price”, but rather “rearing with a better output in the future”. Improving the rearing of young stock is earned back with interest, the moment the heifer comes into lactation. Especially, if heifers calve one or two months earlier, the investment is recovered very quickly. The additional milk production of the heifers means direct profit.
