The milking robot is the ideal place to supplement the PMR (Partial Mixed Ration) at the feeding fence with individual portions per cow. The taste of this concentrate is an extra incentive for many cows to visit the milking robot. With the Commodity feeder, Lely now offers the standard solution in order to saving feed costs.
Optimal rations at a lower cost
By using loose raw materials - such as barley, oats, corn or a combination - instead of the relatively expensive compound feed, it is possible to feed more economically. Especially for self-sufficient dairy farms, this solution can result in considerable savings.. In addition, the farm is less dependent on feed processors and price fluctuations.
The operation of the system depends on the dry matter percentage, the particle size and the stickiness of the feed type. The Commodity feeder is also available as an upgrade kit and can easily be mounted on already installed Lely Astronaut robots of the A5 and A4 types (in operation from July 2013). The upgrade kit is now available from the local Lely Centers.

Lely is introducing a unique concept for autonomous feeding with fresh grass
Maassluis, 6 October 2020 - Lely is launching the first concept for the fully autonomous harvesting and feeding of fresh grass: Lely Exos. With this system, dairy farmers can use a large part of their grassland to produce fresh feed. As a result, they use the nutritional value of their roughage more efficiently, and can produce more milk from their own grassland. This solution is completely compatible with making dairy farms circular. In addition, the system saves on labour and feed costs.
