On February 23, 2009, the Lely Juno automated feed pusher won a "Victoires des Agriculteurs" in the category "Productivity in dairy farms" at the fair "Salon de l'Agriculture" in Paris. This prize is an initiative of the organisation "SYRPA", which involves more than 300 members in agriculture communication and was founded in 1898 to exchange experiences between professionals and to encourage actions and innovations in the agricultural business.
The official press release from SYRPA about the JUNO states:
"A robot for automatic feeding that allows feed supply to the cows in a more uniform manner. The animals are calmer which optimizes their ingestion as well as milk production. With this robot, the farmer is able to gain flexibility in his daily job and he gains the equivalent of 22 days of work per year."
Of course Lely is very proud to receive this prestigious award, especially because it proves its leading position with innovative products aimed at improving the quality of the lives of agricultural entrepreneurs.
