Constant overview

The Lely T4C dairy herd management system is the prime source of information for your dairy farm. It delivers real-time insight with no extra work. You can take direct action yourself and you can also act preventively based on predictions.

Constant overview 

Lely T4C is specially designed for automatic milking with the Lely Astronaut automatic milking system. It also links to other Lely equipment, such as the Lely Vector automatic feeding system. This herd management software translates data from the barn into usable information for a clear insight into the results of your work. Lely T4C provides reliable data that you can use to make the right decisions to reach both the short- and long-term goals of your farm. In both cases, business optimisation is key. 

It enables you to monitor constantly, act at an early stage and provide appropriate attention to the cows that need it. It also helps you to optimise your barn routines and improve your business results. In addition to T4C Office for more strategic information, there is the T4C InHerd mobile version for day-to- day tasks.

Tailored health insight per cow

T4C TotalHealth

For even more insight into the health of your cows the Lely T4C TotalHealth was developed. TotalHealth is a component of T4C that is specifically tailored to total cow health.  

TotalHealth attentions 

The first component of T4C TotalHealth we have released is TotalHealth-attentions. TotalHealth-attentions gives you even more support in your daily routines. In the blink of an eye, you can see which cow needs attention, allowing you to intervene in a faster and more targeted fashion. This improves the health per cow and in turn, your operating result. 

Improve cow health and save time 

Lely T4C allows you to take advantage of all the data collected by the Lely Astronaut milking robot during the milking process. TotalHealth-attentions even takes this a step further: the data is converted into a health analysis for each individual cow. From this analysis, a total cow health score gets computed. When a critical threshold is reached, this will be shown for that cow in TotalHealth-attentions. 

This makes it clear which cows really require attention. The health score will immediately show you the cause, allowing you to take action immediately and in a very targeted fashion. This could be a check in the herd management programme to separate the cow afterwards or a visual check in the barn.

TotalHealth-attentions is available for free in T4C Office as well as in T4C InHerd. 

Thinking along about efficiency

With TotalHealth-attentions you can take even more advantage from milking with our milking robot. Even after a quarter century of automatic milking with the Lely Astronaut, we keep trying to come up with ways to make work in and around the barn as efficient and pleasant as possible. Healthy cows are invaluable for this. We simultaneously strive towards optimal cow health and production.

Lely T4C InHerd

More freedom, more control

As you are walking through your barn, you see a cow with hooves that need trimming. With the T4C InHerd mobile app, you can act immediately. The cow is automatically separated after its next milking, ready for its trim. This is just one example of how InHerd can make your life easier. InHerd provides a constant overview of your farm and cows that need your attention so you can take action when it is needed.
