Approximately 70% reduction in ammonia emissions

Lely is introducing a unique concept for autonomous feeding with fresh grass
Maassluis, 6 October 2020 - Lely is launching the first concept for the fully autonomous harvesting and feeding of fresh grass: Lely Exos. With this system, dairy farmers can use a large part of their grassland to produce fresh feed. As a result, they use the nutritional value of their roughage more efficiently, and can produce more milk from their own grassland. This solution is completely compatible with making dairy farms circular. In addition, the system saves on labour and feed costs.
