At Lely, we are on a journey to help farmers meet their needs and realise the potential of dairy in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way. This has been our driving force since 1948. We want to accelerate change and drive progress. We are farming innovators.

Milk and dairy products are among the most nutritious foods in the world. They contain high-quality protein and are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals. With a growing world population and an increase in wealth and disposable income, the demand for animal protein is expected to increase. 

We believe in the potential of dairy as a sustainable source of protein since cows can convert low-value proteins such as grass into high-value proteins. To secure this potential in the future, the dairy sector needs to address several major environmental and societal challenges. Some of the sector’s biggest challenges include reducing its climate impact, further improving animal welfare and increasing transparency about how and where its dairy products are made. 

Sustainable milk production

We take responsibility and are motivated to address these challenges by utilising our strengths to create value throughout the dairy chain. Since day one, these strengths have been at the centre of everything we do: create innovative solutions that help our customers excel in sustainable milk production to feed the world.

Bright farming starts with bright business

We want to help shape a sustainable future for the agricultural industry with an awareness of the world around us. We do this by introducing new, integrated solutions that make a significant and positive impact on cows, people and the planet. This means contributing to reversing the environmental impact of dairy farming while continuing to improve cow welfare and the financial and social well-being of farmers.

Every action and interaction within our value chain contributes to realising our mission: from the way we run our operations to the impact our work has throughout the dairy chain. Our journey towards a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable future in dairy farming is based on two pillars:
