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.
