As a farmer, you face the daily challenge of handling and prioritising all the work that needs to be done in the barn. On top of that, it is normal to be distracted during your day and tasks can easily be forgotten.

With Lely Horizon, you can fully customise your daily routines into clear and easy to follow tasks and have the relevant information available whenever you need it. Optimise your workflow now.

Cow touches and routing

Horizon is fully in sync with Lely’s free cow philosophy. Work smarter with proven routines and carefully selected cow touches. A great functionality to optimise cow touches is automatic routing, which automatically routes the cows to the right place at the time you want, e.g. for hoof care and insemination. Horizon’s task-based way of working results in a more efficient way of farming by establishing clear routines, freeing up more time for other activities.

Helps to keep you organised

Hoof care

You might like hoof care to be carried out regularly every Wednesday afternoon. The criteria for the setup in Horizon might be as follows: all cows in lactation between 60-70 days and cows that are about to dry off need a hoof check. Lely Horizon ensures these cows are separated when the task needs to be performed. Additionally, cows with acute hoof issues can be manually added to this list.

Heat and insemination

Horizon identifies the cows that are in heat and gives a signal when a cow in heat is detected and there is potential for insemination. These cows can then be separated according to a range of criteria (e.g. activity). The task pops up during your shift in the afternoon.

Alarm management

To truly manage by exception, you can set your alarm management and assign alarms to the right person at the right time. Additionally, push notifications sent via the mobile application bring relevant notifications directly to your attention.
