To find out more about the Lely Calm calf feeder. If you are pursuit of a sustainable cow with a high lifetime production must first optimise the rearing of young cattle.
The Lely Calm automatic calf feeder guarantees the optimal growth and development of these young animals. Calves can still enjoy their natural behaviour and drink whenever they want, in a controlled way, while labour is reduced to the minimum. After all, today's calves are tomorrow's high performance cows One of the most important aspects of the Lely Calm automatic calf feeder's benefits is the labour saving. Labour availability is becoming more and more important on dairy farms. Farmers and their workers will have to improve efficiency even further to be able to achieve a reasonable income and the calf rearing is an area where often some very large savings can be made. One of the biggest savings is the reduction of time for milk preparation and the actual feeding of the milk.
The Calm calf feeder works from a central unit, which prepares the milk and distributes it to a drinking station where the calf will receive her portion.
Cleaning is another feature; no more cleaning of all the buckets. The Calm feeder can be equipped with an automatic cleaning kit. Due to the central feeding alley compared to feeding roughage per pen this time is reduced as well.
The Calm calf feeder will also drastically reduce management time, which is done by the exception reports and alerts you will receive from the process controller.
Some considerable additional benefits can come from the extra time available for observation of the calves.

The Lely Astronaut A5 is 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.
Ten years ago, we installed the first Vector feeding system. Since then through our continuous effort on hardware and software improvements we have matured the system and made sure that our customers are satisfied with its performance. Click below for more details.
