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.
Labour is a limiting factor in keeping the feed in reach of your cows. Based on three feed pushing rounds of 10 minutes a day, an automatic feed pusher will save you at least 180 hours a year. This is more than a monthly wage of a FTE per year.
When you feed with a feed wagon, feeding 2 to 3 times a day achieves the optimal balance between the amount of work and an optimal feed intake. This means that you have to push the feed 6 to 8 times per day.
By automating the repetitive work this does not interrupt your day. Allowing you to time to focus on Grassland management, the breeding side of herd management, or tinkering with cow rations and optimising the feed conversion efficiency.
