T4C management system
Lely often states that the introduction of the milking robot has not only automated milking but that it has changed overall management on dairy farms as well. The milking robot's management program provides extensive information, allowing you to make better management decisions sooner. Thanks to the robot you collect a massive amount of data on milk, behavior and, hence, on the health of your cows. By introducing the latest version of its T4C (Time for Cows) management program, Lely now makes a next move.
