First startup of 2022! These two Lely A5 Astronauts have simply been added to the end of the existing cubicle building, to allow the college to split the cows into a new robot milked herd, running alongside the existing miking parlour. This will give the students the ability to experience convential milking and the best in robotic free cow access milking all on the same campus. The Lely Juno feed pusher and Discovery slat cleaner, previously installed, have already proved themselves to be a great investment. 🐄🐮🐄🐮🐄🐮🐄

Explore the Lely Astronaut System

The new milestone in milking - it's an evolution that incorporates everything we have learnt over the past 25 years since we invented automatic milking. We looked at our cows, we listened to our customers and we stuck to proven practices, but we also completely redesigned every bit of the system.

Designed to suit the needs of your cows and farm, click below for more details.

Automatic feeding is now affordable!

We are extremely proud to be recognised as the market leader in manufacturing of automatic feeding systems. Ten years ago, we installed the first Vector feeding system. Since then we have matured the system and made sure that our customers are satisfied with its performance.

Revolutionary manure robots for dense barn floors

Regular cleaning of the floor inhibits the growth of bacteria and keeps feet, udders and tails cleaner. This not only increases foot health, it contributes to the overall productivity of your herd. By using the very latest technology, the barn floor can be kept clean automatically.

Increasing the feed intake has never been easier

Frequent feed pushing, throughout the day and night, stimulates the dry matter intake of the herd. This optimises rumen health, feed efficiency and productivity. By automating this recurring work, the Lely Juno makes your life easier and makes your day more flexible, your production more efficient and your business more successful.

The Lely Juno is suited to every farm, to find out more click below.
