Running a large dairy farm means coping with many challenges. By bringing automation and technology to your farm it ensures the repetitive tasks are significantly reduced and you’ll benefit from a smaller, yet more skilled workforce. At the same time, animal welfare increases when your barn is designed around the cow and presents her with an environment to maximise her genetic potential.

David Trimner - Miltrim Farms
Hear how David’s labour requirement has changed from full conventional milking, to the first stage in stalling 18 x Astronauts, to adding another 12 x Astronauts in the second stage and the efficiencies that created.
David will also talk to us about the practicalities and learnings around many topics including balancing nutrition between the robot and feed fence, managing BCS in robots, grouping cows and much more.
We will also get a glimpse on what the future holds for Miltrim Farms and what role robotics will play in that.

Lely's Dairy XL concept is where we help you create an environment where your cows, technology and people all work together, excel and increase results.
By having your cows and technology work for you, your time is freed up to focus on other routines and execute the right decisions. The nature of labour changes from repetitive work to focusing on only those cows and jobs that need attention.
