10 years of Vector, thanks to our test and validation customers!
Lely installed the first Vector system on a number of dairy farms back in 2011. The Overbeek family in Benschop run such a farm, (NL), where they had already shown an interest in automatic milking and feeding when building a new barn for their dairy cows. The family initially started using the Astronaut A3 Next for automatic milking, then also switched to the Lely Vector for automatic feeding. Kees and Sjors Overbeek had already used automatic feeding at their old farm, but it was a rail system. The Vector offered them much more flexibility.

Lely adds flavor to milk with new feeding components
Lely has developed unique milk by adding new precursors to rations. Thanks to the link between the Vector feeding system, the Astronaut milking robot and the Orbiter milk processor, knowledge and insight has been gained about the entire process from feed to milk. The key findings were that the ration does not only affect the composition of the milk, but also the taste. The experiments also examined which feeding components had a positive and negative effect on taste.

Lely and ID Agro enter into a partnership for modular feed kitchens
After jointly introducing the first modular feed kitchen in 2017, robot manufacturer Lely and barn innovator ID Agro have now entered into an official partnership. In recent years, both specialists have continued work on the system to ensure it is an even better match for Lely's Vector feeding system. With this partnership, both organisations have given the green flag to distribute the modular feed kitchen via the Lely Center network. This allows ID Agro to expand its sales market, while Lely Centers can offer their customers a complete automatic feeding system. For livestock farmers, it means a shorter turnaround time and further direct communication lines during the planning and installation of the Vector system.
