Join us at our upcoming Open Day in Newcastle West, Limerick and see a Lely Astronaut A5 in action.
Learn how Denis & Kevin Mulcahy have automated their milking process and have seen huge benefits to both milk production and lifestyle.  

"We were looking at the Lely system for a number of years. Our only regret is that we didn't make the change sooner!''  Denis Mulcahy

More about the Open Day


Denis & Kevin Mulcahy are farming in partnership just outside Monagea in Co.Limerick Which is 10 minutes from Newcastle West.
The open day will be a discussion about how Denis and Kevin switched their herd to automatic milking and ABC grazing.

The Mulcahy’s made the switch in October 2019 and have never looked back. Moving from milking 5 hours/day in an 8-unit milking parlour to producing 485,000 litres on a single robot. Denis & Kevin have seen improvements in production, herd health and genetics maximising their time and using the information from Lely’s award-winning management software Horizon. They have also seen a huge improvement in lifestyle with more free time, while Kevin holds down a full-time job as an engineer, he has greater levels of free time and flexibility with his Lely Astronaut.

Find out how the family came to the decision to go automated and learn how Lely Center Mitchelstown helped with the transition.

"We both were at Limericks 2021 All-Ireland victory in Croke Park and we were in no hurry home!"

Learn more about automatic milking

We believe that automated milking systems have numerous advantages over traditional parlours from the improved welfare of your herd to better efficiency as well as a host of practical benefits.

The Lely Astronaut A5 is the new milestone in automatic 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 part of the system.
