Always the correct amount of feed with minimum work and energy: these are the principles of the Lely Vector automatic feeding system. Cows and their natural behavior came first when developing the Vector. When cows are out to pasture they can eat all day; now they can also do that in the barn.
With automatic feeding, you not only save time, you also remove feeding entirely from your daily routines. Your cows always have a fresh and properly mixed ration at the feed fence, meaning they can eat several times a day. This stimulates the cows’ activity, ultimately leading to a rise in milk yield.
During its rounds, the Vector does two jobs: it pushes the feed and tops it off when necessary. In each round the feed-height sensor identifies the quantity of feed at the feed fence. The feeding robot determines whether fresh feed is necessary, and if so how much, without you having to think about it. The only thing that needs to be configured manually is the height of the feed at the feed fence. In addition to measuring the feed, the Vector is also a feed pusher. Therefore, even if it does not need to be topped off, there is still sufficient feed within the cows’ reach.
