All of our solutions can be used to achieve your specific goals, whether they be a more efficient use of labour, better cow health or increased yields.

30 Years ago…

... automatic milking started with the Lely Astronaut

In the early 1990s, Lely started developing a fully automatic milking system, the Lely Astronaut. In 1992 the first edition was installed at a farm in the Netherlands. The Lely Astronaut was the first milking robot on the market and was later recognized as the most important innovation for dairy farming of the twentieth century. The innovation process still continuous.

Please, find out more about steps we have taken since then.

Our solutions for automated milking

Lely Astronaut

A new milestone in milking

Automatic milking introduces a new routine on your farm, providing greater flexibility, enhanced efficiency, and a better work-life balance. The new routine also means that you are in control. You decide what your day-to-day management involves. It also allows your cows to follow their own rhythm at all times.

Lely Nautilus

Cooling tank for high-quality milk

Round-the-clock safeguarding of milk quality and maximum hygiene: that is what the Lely Nautilus cooling tank has to offer. Cooling starts with the first drop of milk and is adjusted based on the milk volume in the tank. The tank seamlessly works in tandem with the Lely Astronaut, our automatic milking system.

Lely Grazeway

For efficient grazing

Robotic milking and grazing go hand in hand. The Lely Grazeway selection box supports efficient grazing. The cow decides whether she wants to go outside. The Grazeway indicates if this is allowed or whether the cow needs to be milked first.

Lely Pasture systems

Pasture based automated milking

Perfectly suited to pastoral milking systems just like we have here, automating your milking means less labour costs and leads to more efficient milk extraction and animal knowledge. What may also surprise you is you can increase your production by at least 10% with the Lely Astronaut.

Lely Qwes

24/7 insights about your cows

A true insight into your cows’ health prevents diseases and loss of production. The Lely Qwes cow-recognition system measures the most vital data per cow every two hours. There are tags for various aspects, such as identification, checking whether the cow is in heat and rumination.
