Feeding more frequently stimulates fodder ingestion, so it benefits animal health, fertility and production. Eating several times a day keeps the pH value of the rumen constant, and allows cows to make better use of the ration they eat. Animals become more active: they visit the milking robot more often, resulting in an increased output of milk.
Automatic feeding means that cows are fed with precision. You can define exactly the right ingredients needed to feed each group of animals, including beef cattle. This has a positive influence on feed efficiency, and the development and production of your animals.
Feeding more frequently ensures there is always enough fresh feed at the feed fence. The Lely Vector senses when it is time for a new feeding round. The mixing and feeding robot measures the feed height of a specific section to determine when the ration needs to be supplemented, so there is never too much or too little feed at the feed fence.
Feeding with the Vector provides more understanding into the efficiency and profitability of your feed strategy. The T4C management system indicates average feed ingestion per cow and per group. You can measure the effects of changes to rations by linking the system to the Lely Astronaut. This allows you to gain an insight into whether the cost of a change produces not only a higher yield but also a higher return.
The silage cutter allows you to store different types of food in the kitchen. This machine has an exceptionally high cutting capacity and is designed for even the toughest silage. Thanks to the extra 105-cm depth, the BC 180 XL is ideal for filling feed kitchens. The block contains a lot of feed and can safely be stored in the feed kitchen with no risk of dropping.
The feed kitchen is the area in which the feed is stored, selected, picked up and loaded into the robot for mixing. In the kitchen, a crane construction with a feed grabber is installed that moves above the kitchen to the right block of feed. Depending on the width and depth of the kitchen, it can easily stock feed for three days.
The mixing and feeding robot of the Lely Vector system is a self-contained battery-operated vehicle that is capable of automatically feeding a self-mixed ration.
Before the Vector comes into operation, we help you prepare your farm for automatic feeding. This includes, for example, a training course on how to operate the Vector and the associated management system. It also includes advice on well-being of the cows and how to design the barn.
When the Vector is delivered, the robot is first extensively checked. Automatic feeding only starts once everything is accurate, down to the last detail. During the initial feeding, the first step after installation, we give you intensive support. Support is available 24/7.
Even once everything is working perfectly, we continue to offer support and guidance. Of course, we are always interested in knowing how happy you are and whether there are any improvements we could help with. We continually provide analysis and advice to ensure the best possible result.
Questions about finance? We will be glad to help and advise you.
Regardless of the date or time, you have technical support 24/7.
When the barn equipment is working, we are there to further optimise it.
The natural way to milk
An increased milk yield and overviews whenever and wherever you want them: automatic milking makes it all possible. The milking system collects data per cow on milk production and cow health. This alerts you on time to any changes, allowing you to devote your attention to the cows that need it most.
Concentrate feeder for cows that deserve a little more
Higher milk yield, improved rumen health and efficient feeding: you get all of these with the Lely Cosmix. Every cow gets the portion of concentrate that it requires. The Lely T4C management system provides insights into the concentrate intake. In this way you get the most out of your feed strategy.
For efficient grazing
Robotic milking and grazing go hand in hand. The Lely Grazeway selection box supports efficient grazing. The cow decides whether she wants to go outside. The Grazeway indicates if this is allowed or whether the cow needs to be milked first.
Efficient feeding has a positive effect on cow health and milk yield. Mixing the right portions in the right quantities and releasing them just at the right moment requires knowledge, understanding and time. Our products for automatic feeding take on this task and are exceptionally efficient. Saving you time and ensuring the right feed at the right moment.
