Running a large dairy farm means coping with many challenges. By bringing automation and technology to your farm it ensures the repetitive tasks are significantly reduced and you’ll benefit from a smaller, yet more skilled workforce. At the same time, animal welfare increases when your barn is designed around the cow and presents her with an environment to maximise her genetic potential.

Lely's Dairy XL concept is where we help you create an environment where your cows, technology and people all work together, excel and increase results.
By having your cows and technology work for you, your time is freed up to focus on other routines and execute the right decisions. The nature of labour changes from repetitive work to focusing on only those cows and jobs that need attention.
