Aart van 't land, Director Business Development at Lely: “More and more data is becoming available on the farm. Not only from our robots, but also data from feed suppliers, veterinarians, weather forecasters, insemination partners, and so on. Our goal is to make better use of this data and, with their permission, to assist farmers in their complex decision-making process. The cooperation with Milkalyser is an important step in this regard.
Milkalyser will continue to operate in Exeter with a team of specialist dedicated for the development of this technology in close cooperation with the Lely R&D.
Toby Mottram, the founder of Milkalyser is looking forward to further develop the ideas as he stated: “The combination of the expertise and IP build by Milkalyser combined with the great domain knowledge and experience in innovation from Lely, results in a very strong partnership that will lead to important value creation for dairy farmers.

Lely discontinues commercial activities in Russia and Belarus
Lely is shocked by Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine. The Ukrainian people are in the midst of a war and face great uncertainty. Our thoughts are with the people directly affected by this crisis. Lely condemns Russia’s invasion and is immediately ceasing commercial activities in the region. This means that we will stop supplying robots to Russia and Belarus. We will continue to supply spare parts and consumables to our existing customers in these countries, considering that otherwise cow welfare and food supply in the region would be compromised.
