With free cow traffic, the cows decide themselves when to eat, drink, relax or be milked. This freedom allows cows to behave more naturally and in accordance to their own rhythm, leading to higher milk production and profitability.
With Lely's milking robot , you can achieve a significantly lower cost per kilogram of milk produced. The Astronaut is designed to use a limited number of energy efficient movements while milking to ensure energy consumption is low. Reduction of labour costs is another way you can expect a timely return on your investment.
The robot's user-friendly touch-screen interface makes it easy to find your way around functions, settings, information, and important reports. Our milking robot provides the best usability, accessibility and serviceability, all in one system.
The Lely Astronaut A5 is designed with a focus on longevity and reliability. Get peace of mind in your farming that you’re working in the most efficient way and with the most reliable equipment. While you spend your new found free time with family, friends or a hobby, have peace of mind that behind your Lely Astronaut is an organisation you can trust.
The benefits of an A5 Astronaut
Add accuracy to reproduction and inseminate your cows at the right moment to boost your conception rate.
Take care of your most valuable possession: your cows. Healthy cows save costs, time and drive high milk production. Get more control on cow health through the Astronaut's various disease prevention systems.
Good quality milk comes from a healthy udder. Gain clear insights about udder health and get alerted when to take action. Our robots enable you to eliminate bacteria and cross contamination before each milking.
Feed is one of the primary expenses on a dairy farm. Feed each cow to its actual needs to optimise these costs. Get the possibility of using more advanced rations for your feed, including ones in combination with liquid feed.
Cows are able to choose for themselves when they want to go out to pasture. The Grazeway Selection Box then determines whether or not they can, using the Lely Qwes cow-recognition system. By linking the selection box to your cows’ milk yield data, you can manage feeding and grazing much more efficiently.
‘We're really happy with the way the cows have adjusted to it, no grazing, it's a complete change for us and them.’
‘The robots do a better job than I could do on my best day’
‘What’s it gonna be in the future? To me I think it's robotic milking.’
‘Thanks to the Automatic Milking System, we now have more flexibility and more milk’
Always the right advice
Before the Astronaut comes into operation, we help you prepare your farm for robotic milking. This includes, for example, a training course on how to operate the robot and the data management system. It also involves advice on farm designs, feeding and well-being of your herd
When the Astronaut is delivered, the robot is first extensively checked. Milking only starts once everything is working, down to the last detail. We give you intensive support to ensure you have a smooth transition between a traditional and robotic system.
