about Dairy XL

Become a member of the Red Cow Community!

Lely North America extends the Red Cow Community to our Dairy XL herds in the United States and Canada.

With the help of our Lely Centers, we reward the commitment of our Dairy XL customers, dairies with eight or more Lely automated milking systems, by presenting them with a Lely Red Cow to display at the dairy.

Lely is proud to be leading the Red Cow Community with large dairies throughout North America, and for pioneering this growing segment within Lely. As more Dairy XL herds are added, the symbol of the Lely Red Cow will represent the best way to increase efficiencies, achieve more output per cow and manage risk.

Lely North America is proud to work with Dairy XL operations.

The Dairy XL principles

The barn is no longer the place where milking happens, but rather where management happens. This is an important principle within our barn concept. With Dairy XL, we go to the next level in automated work on a dairy farm. We sit down together to look at how best to incorporate automation into your business. Our colleagues from Farm Management Support then help to achieve and maintain that growth through your chosen automation.

Cows are central to automation and to adapting day-to-day routines. Their behavior, health and lactation cycle are the guiding principles when equipping or re-equipping your dairy farm and work. This is further supported by all the information on your livestock in our Lely T4C management system.

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 health. This alerts you on time to any changes, allowing you to devote your attention to the cows that need it most.

Lely Juno

Increasing feed intake has never been easier

The Lely Juno takes over the repetitive work of pushing the feed multiple times a day. By pushing feed regularly, it is always within the cows’ reach. Every cow, even those lower in rank, can eat the roughage it needs for optimal rumen health and growth.

Free Lely On-Site Farm Assessment

A farm assessment from Lely requires no commitment. It’s an opportunity to learn how a Lely system could benefit you and your dairy operation. Whether it is decisions about barn layout, retro-fit versus new construction, or equipment needs, Lely works with you every step of the way. Lely has assisted dairy producers in setting up every size of milking operation and will help you design an optimal system based on the way you want to manage your dairy.
