With 9,000 systems working daily in barns worldwide the Lely Discovery is the most chosen mobile barn cleaner on the market for slatted floors. Together these robots have travelled a distance equal to 37 times around the world and cleaned a surface which is comparable to 6 times the size of the United Kingdom. This makes the Lely Discovery unrivalled when it comes to automatic barn cleaning.

Barn hygiene is essential for good animal health. The Lely Discovery does its rounds as often as needed; making sure that the floor is constantly clean and dry. Clean and dry claws, tails, cubicles and udders prevent claw and udder illnesses and increase farm results as well as animal welfare.
