Introducing a new milestone in milking: the Lely Astronaut A5. The 25 years since we invented automatic milking have been a challenging journey. From 1992 until now, we have carefully studied cows and listened to our customers. We have retained proven practices while tweaking our system to ensure it is fit for the future. The combination of automatic milking principles and our focus on reliability, ease of use and cost efficiency has resulted in the most cow and farmer-friendly milking system.
The new milestone in cow comfort
We managed to build a carefree concept around the cow, to ensure that cows enjoy being milked within a low-threshold system. We took cow comfort to a new level with a unique, precise robot arm and the I-flow concept. As a result, visiting behaviour increases, as does robot capacity.
