Our Farm Management Support specialists continuously investigate how to improve the milking process even further. They do this by running tests in the barn while using our customers’ knowledge of the Lely barn solutions. In this way they gain valuable insights, which help you to manage your dairy farm more efficiently and profitably.
Management, Cow health, Milking
The world of liners
For an optimal milking process, we want to milk quickly (effective in time), gently (maintaining the comfort and well-being of the cow) and completely (milk out all the available milk). Among other things, the liner choice is of major importance to this. This article gives a brief overview of the function of the liner, the specifications and the process of optimization.

T4C management system
Lely often states that the introduction of the milking robot has not only automated milking but that it has changed overall management on dairy farms as well. The milking robot's management program provides extensive information, allowing you to make better management decisions sooner. Thanks to the robot you collect a massive amount of data on milk, behavior and, hence, on the health of your cows. By introducing the latest version of its T4C (Time for Cows) management program, Lely now makes a next move.
