12. Virtual open day on the farm of Derek O'Halleran in Co Longford
Virtual farm tour - Webinar 12

Derek O'Halleran was a new dairy entrant in spring 2020. Due to the fragmented nature of his land, a grazing system was not an option for the farm, so it was decided to develop an indoor robotic milking system with a high yielding herd. Hoof health is vital to the success of the system with a Lely Discovery Collector installed to ensure passages in the shed are kept clean at all times.

13. Virtual Farm Tour - Henry and Robert Mulligan open day - Milking 420 cows on a grass-based robotic system
Virtual Farm tour - Webinar 13

Henry and Robert Mulligan from Co Meath installed six Lely robots on their farm in September 2019 to milk their herd of over 400 cows. The farmers held a virtual open day on their farm to give their honest opinion of the system to date. If you are interested in developing a similar system contact the team at Lely Center Mullingar.

14. Virtual Open Day: New entrant milking Fleckvieh & British Friesian Heifers on a grass-based robotic system
Virtual Farm tour - Webinar 14

Jack Madigan from Co. Kilkenny converted to dairying in 2020 with the installation of a Lely Astronaut A5. The farm started off with 70 heifers, half of which were Fleckvieh heifers imported from Austria. Keeping building costs to a minimum and making the best use out of the existing shed were key considerations for the farmyard design team on this project. Jack will outline his experiences of the system to date and share his advice for anyone thinking of going down the robotic milking route.

15. Virtual open day: Milking 130 cows on two Lely Robots in Co Kildare
Virtual Farm tour - Webinar 15

Peter Anderson from Co Kildare converted to dairying in spring 2019, installing a Lely A5 to milk his 64 heifers on a grass-based system. In spring 2020 he installed his second Lely A5 and increased numbers to 100 cows with an average production of 490kg of milk solids. For 2021 he aims to milk 130 cows on the system. Peter will outline how the system has worked for the farm to date and how the information he gets from his robots helps him to make daily management decisions.

Virtual Farm Tour - Webinar 17

The team at Lely Center Mullingar examine in-depth; the options farmers have when looking at a robotic scraper for their yard. The Lely Discovery and Lely Discovery Collector offer unrivalled flexibility when it comes to cleaning both solid and slatted areas within sheds and farmyards.

Learn how these machines work and what they are capable of doing. You will also get the opportunity to hear from local farmers on their experience of these products

The webinar will also focus on the Lely Juno automatic feed pusher and the potential benefits that can be seen by more regular pushing up of feed such as increased feeding times and therefore production. 

In addition, the Lely Calm automatic calf feeding system will be discussed and the many labour saving and calf performance benefits they bring to calf rearing.

Promotions

The Targeted Agricultural Modernisation Schemes (TAMS) were launched in May 2015 to support the sustainable development of Irish agriculture. The grants enabled farmers to meet the challenges of climate change and to increase efficiency on their holdings. 

TAMS are still providing grants to farmers to build and/or improve a specified range of farm buildings and equipment on their holding. Due to the covid-19 pandemic the grants have been extended until December 2021.

Click below to find out more about which grants are available, or why not speak to one of our Lely Center representatives to learn more!?
