Flexibility and well-being for yourself and your cows while retaining optimal production and high-quality milk. Being animal friendly, working efficiently and controlling costs. These are the constant concerns of all dairy farmers in the world.

As a dairy farmer, you choose where you fit in with this day-to- day reality. While you keep looking after your long-term goals. You do this together with vets and feed advisors and with the support of barn equipment and technology. Automation can help you further.

Dairy farmers all over the world have been successfully using our automated barn systems for over twenty years. They offer an efficient way of working, with free cow traffic as the guiding principle.

Free cow traffic 

Cow health and well-being is of vital importance to all dairy farms. A healthy and stress-free cow is a productive cow. Free cow traffic ensures a natural rhythm. The cows decide themselves when to eat, drink, relax or be milked. Their natural behaviour determines the design of the barn and work processes. 

Free cow traffic stimulates herd activity and leads to better milk production.


A more efficient way of working

Our barn solutions are all centred around free cow traffic. It is not only the cows that get more freedom. As a dairy farmer you also benefit from more flexibility in your day-to-day activities, by working more efficiently with a lower workload. 

Management systems link several business processes, such as milking and feeding, together. This results in real-time information on the herd, placing quick and efficient decision making within easy reach. This provides easy monitoring of optimal results and goals.

Freedom of choice

Dairy farmers in over sixty countries are already working successfully with our systems. For milking, care and feeding. A long-term partnership centred around you and your specific goals. 

Freedom to choose the automatic systems that help you achieve your objectives. With the help of individual advice and technical support while you work.

Flexibility and well-being for dairy farmers and their cows.


All of our products in the barn complement each other


Producing high-quality milk requires time and care. It requires healthy and happy cows. It requires making the right choices. Choices that fit in with you and your goals. Our solutions for automatic milking help you make the right decisions for attaining these goals.


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.

Housing and caring

An animal-friendly and productive environment contributes to optimal cow health and well-being. It also lengthens the lactation cycle. By choosing the best and most comfortable design for the barn with the right resources, you not only improve cow health. Milk yield also increases and costs go down.

Management systems

Always having a comprehensive insight into cow health and milk yield helps you make the right decisions. Our management system, Lely T4C, translates data from the barn into useful information. With no extra workload. This means that you can intervene at an early stage, operationally and strategically, and for the long term.

Farm Management Support

Optimisation of the dairy farm is more important than ever. Dairy farmers who opt for automation are faced with choices to help achieve specific goals. Again and again. Making the right decisions is easier when you work closely with an experienced partner. You need someone who is aware of the challenges you are faced with, knows your goals and provides you with tailored advice.
