The 1,000th Lely Discovery 120 Collector has been delivered on a dairy farm in Norway. A true milestone and perfect to close a successful year with, especially since the Collector has only been introduced in 2016 as the solution for cleaning closed barn floors.

The Discovery Collector is specifically designed for barns with solid floors and takes a revolutionary diverse approach when compared to traditional manure scrapers. The Collector does not push manure, but vacuums it. This makes the build-up of manure – in which cows stand – a thing of the past. This not only makes a cleaner floor, it also ensures that cows’ hooves remain cleaner. This improves both cow health and the well-being of the animals.
"The positive feedback from dairy farmers all over the world shows that there is a clear need for cleaning complete solid floors in a much more flexible as well as animal friendlier way. " says Clemens Duijnisveld, Product Manager Barn at Lely. “The routes of the cleaning program can be easily managed according to the daily rhythm of the farm and the cows. The Discovery 120 Collector navigates independently using built-in sensors. A big benefit of the Lely Discovery 120 Collector is elimination of manure pool in front of the machine therefore resulting in animal friendlier environment for cows. Less obstacles decrease the incidence of white line defects and ensures cows can move more safely through the barn.”
The Lely Discovery 120 Collector operates currently in 25 countries. For more information about the Lely Discovery 120 Collector, contact your Lely Center.
