The Lely Astronaut A5 is 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.

The combination of the proven automatic milking principles and our focus on reliability, as well as ease of use and cost efficiency, has resulted in the most cow and farm friendly milking system. From cleaning and treating udders, milk quality controls, milk transport, cooling and the robot cleaning system: everything is designed to guarantee good-quality milk.

Imagine the satisfaction that comes from freeing up your time to manage cows individually and being able to spend less time reacting and more time being proactive. Passions, interests and goals are different for everyone so think about yours. Let them drive you to open your mind to the possibilities and solutions that are out there – and towards change.

Support your grazing strategy

Grazing choice

Grazing is the most natural way the cows get fed. Grazing positively impacts cow welfare and health. Get healthy happy cows out in the field while having full control of your milk production

Hoof Health

Improve hoof health

Hoof health choice

Good hoof health is important to the well-being of cows and dairy farms. In order to be able to move freely, the cow must have healthy hooves. With healthy hooves she can do as she pleases in the barn or in the field: rest, feed, drink or visit the milking robot.
