Meet our general manager

 

"Lely have a fantastic range of automation, not just the milking robots, but robotic feeders, feed pushers and scrapers, everything they do is about consistency, saving labour and energy.

Hi, I’m Dan Gifford, I’ve worked at Lely Center Holsworthy since 2009, having gained an interest in robotics whilst working on the maintenance of six A3 milking robots on my wife’s family farm.

After joining Lely, I progressed from an SL1 to an SL2 service technician before becoming Service Manager in 2012 looking after the team of Engineers throughout Devon & Cornwall.

I became General Manager of the Lely Center in July 2021 and I have a firm 5-year plan; I want to increase the number of robots throughout the two counties to in excess of 400 robots and, as  importantly, I want to ensure I have a dedicated and happy workforce alongside me who will be key to helping me achieve this progression.

Lely Center Holsworthy has been established since 2008, and we are one of the pioneers in Lely robotic milking, feeding and barn products in the UK. The Center has evolved over time to provide a complete design, sales, service and back up operation second to none, helping our customers achieve higher productivity and effectiveness on their farm.

We have a team of certified service technicians located throughout the Devon & Cornwall region which ensures a quick response time 365 days a year; they all have the same goal – to maintain each robot to the highest standard and keep failures to a minimum and to keep customer satisfaction high.

The service technicians are supported by a dedicated team which consist of Sales Specialists, a Compressor Engineer, Service Manager, Project Coordinator, three Farm Management Support specialists, an Admin team, a Marketing Specialist and a Store & Stock control team along with a vast stock of spares. It’s a team effort, whether that be designing a barn layout or assisting the feed nutritionist or vet, we are all here to help every Lely customer achieve their goals.

We are building long term relationships with our customers! If you are not a customer yet, call us or click on the below to find out how we can help you."

Testimonials

Beef Farmers Bryan & Andrew Olde: Devon

1 Lely Juno

Lely Juno helps beef farmers save money and finish cattle earlier. Daily intake has increased by 6.5kg a day and the Olde’s predict that this will not only result in them being able to sell cattle up to 30 days quicker and saving around £40 per head, but this will also see an annual increase in stock throughput.
