By making the relevant information easily accessible and understandable, dairy and beef cattle farmers are more in control of their feed management process. Real-time information helps the farmer to make fact-based decisions in order to improve feed efficiency. Minimum feed losses and rest feed have a positive impact on the margin of feed, resulting in a higher profit for the farmer.
Key performance indicators such as average feed intake per day and per animal are helping dairy as well as beef cattle farmers. The new reports give an overview of the fed ration and the costs for a specific animal group in a specific time frame. Dairy farmers can, for example, easily check their feed costs per 100 kg milk and thus their feed efficiency. Beef cattle farmers can check the average intake per group and monitor the total ration that is fed during an entire feed round.
The Lely T4C management system connects the Lely Vector automatic feeding system with the Lely Astronaut milking robots for real-time management information. Dairy farmers with another milking system can create the same reports by easily entering their milk production figures.
The Lely Vector automatic feeding system is far more accurate than any other feeding system on the market. Accuracy reports for the feed grabber, which loads the mixing and feeding wagon, help to reduce the difference in the calculated ration and the fed ration to a minimum.
Thanks to the improved Lely T4C management system, farmers are able to feed according to their cows’ needs, allowing them to excel in milk or meat production.

Lely Exos nominated for the DLG Agrifuture Concept Winner 2022
Maassluis, 22 September 2022 – Lely Exos, the world’s first concept for fully autonomous harvesting and feeding of fresh grass, has been nominated for the DLG Agrifuture Concept Winner 2022. With Exos, Lely introduced an innovation in 2020 that is fully compatible with the transition to sustainable and circular dairy farming. Exos enables dairy farmers to use a large part of their grassland to produce fresh feed. This results in a more efficient use of nutritional value of their roughage and more milk in the tank while saving labour and feed costs.

FrieslandCampina, Rabobank and Lely start pilot to reduce nitrogen
FrieslandCampina, Rabobank and Lely are joining forces to reduce nitrogen emissions at dairy farms. They are entering into a partnership for the installation of 96 Lely Spheres, spread across all Dutch provinces. The Lely Sphere is an installation that reduces nitrogen emissions up to 70 percent in the barn of a dairy farm. The three parties hope that after this pilot project the concept will be applied on a broader scale in the sector.
