The Lely Exos fresh grass concept is a revolution in the use of roughage. With autonomous harvesting and feeding of fresh grass, you produce more milk from forage from your own land. In addition, you save considerably on labour, mechanisation and feed costs.
Autonomously feeding fresh grass is a perfect addition to grazing. The combination of grazing and fresh grass in the barn ensures a much higher grass intake on most dairy farms. This can add 3 kg to 4 kg of extra dry matter in the form of fresh grass per cow per day. You let the cows graze close to the barn while the Lely Exos harvests the grass from the fields further away. The system leaves no manure in the fields and does not flatten the crop.
