Explore the Lely Astronaut System

The new milestone in milking - it's an evolution that incorporates everything we have learnt over the past 25 years since we invented automatic milking. We looked at our cows, we listened to our customers and we stuck to proven practices, but we also completely redesigned every bit of the system.

Designed to suit the needs of your cows and farm, click below for more details.

Increasing the feed intake has never been easier

Frequent feed pushing, throughout the day and night, stimulates the dry matter intake of the herd. This optimises rumen health, feed efficiency and productivity. By automating this recurring work, the Lely Juno makes your life easier and makes your day more flexible, your production more efficient and your business more successful.

The Lely Juno is suited to every farm, to find out more click below.

Revolutionary manure robots for dense barn floors

Regular cleaning of the floor inhibits the growth of bacteria and keeps feet, udders and tails cleaner. This not only increases foot health, it contributes to the overall productivity of your herd. By using the very latest technology, the barn floor can be kept clean automatically.

Celebrating the 50,000th Astronaut

The most experienced milking robot worldwide

Celebrating the 50,000th robot!

 

1992 marks a moment of true revolution for dairy farming, the first working prototype of a fully automated milking system. It represents a whole new way of milking and working. It is therefore no suprise that dairy farmers consider this the most important invention of the 20th century for dairy farming. Now, 31 years later the 50,000th Astronaut automatic milking system will be installed.

Gearoid Maher, Cappamore, Co. Limerick 1x Lely Discovery Collector

‘The Discovery Collector is specifically designed for barns with solid floors and takes a revolutionary diverse approach when compared to traditional manure scrapers. The Collector does not push manure, but vacuums it. This makes the build-up of manure – in which cows stand – a thing of the past. This not only makes for a cleaner floor, it also ensures the cows’ hooves remain cleaner. This improves both cow health and the well-being of the animals.’
