Benefits

Flexibility while saving labor

Feeding your cows yourself is a thing of the past with the Lely Vector. This saves you an average of eight hours a week. The feed kitchen concept also allows feed to be stored for several days, which means you no longer need to spend time feeding on the weekends. The Vector takes work out of your hands, giving you more flexibility when planning your day.

Automatic feeding when strictly necessary

The automatic feeding system ensures that there is always enough fresh feed delivered to the herd with no input from you. When the feed is being pushed, the feed-height sensor detects whether more feed needs to be added. This means that you only provide feed when strictly necessary. This reduces the amount of feed waste and increases the quantity of fresh feed.

More frequent feeding at a lower cost

The best feed strategy for optimal milk production is to provide a fresh, measured and properly mixed ration eight times a day. With the Vector, each group of animals receives the appropriate ration several times a day. You can rely on the ration measured equaling the ration fed, because the Vector loads it accurately. This means that you save time as well as feed costs and fuel.

Insight into return

Feeding with the Vector means more insight into the return on your feeding strategy. The Lely T4C management system shows you the average feed intake at group and individual cow levels. By linking the Lely Vector to the Lely Astronaut you can measure the effects of changes to rations. This gives you an insight into whether the cost of a ration change produces not only a higher yield but also a higher return.

Support at every step of the way

Always the right advice

Before

Before the Vector comes into operation, we help you prepare your farm for automatic feeding. This includes a training course on how to operate the Vector and the associated management system. It also includes advice on the well-being of the cows and how to design the barn.

During

When the Vector is delivered, the robot is extensively checked. Automatic feeding only starts once everything is accurate, down to the last detail. During the initial feeding -- the first step after installation-- we give you intensive support. Support is available 24/7.

After

Even once everything is working perfectly, we continue to offer support and guidance. Of course, we are always interested in knowing how happy you are and whether there are any improvements we can make. We continually provide analysis and advice to ensure the best possible result.

The Lely Vector works well with

Lely Astronaut

The natural way to milk

An increased milk yield and readily available milking data: automatic milking makes it all possible. The milking system collects individual cow data on milk production and cow health. This alerts you to any changes, allowing you to devote your attention to the cows that need it most.

Lely Cosmix

Concentrate feeder for cows that deserve a little more

Higher milk yield, improved rumen health and efficient feeding is what you get with the Lely Cosmix. Every cow gets the portion of concentrate that it requires. The Lely T4C management system provides insights into the concentrate intake, so you get the most out of your feed strategy.

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, allowing you to monitor what is most important.

Feeding

Efficient feeding has a positive effect on cow health and milk yield. Mixing the right portions in the right quantities and releasing them just at the right moment requires knowledge, understanding and time. Our products for automatic feeding take on this task and are exceptionally efficient, saving you time and ensuring the right feed at the right moment.
