Have you ever heard the old adage “At breakfast the chicken is involved, but the pig was committed”?
Happy National Dairy Month! Here are a few ways you can join us in celebrating the importance dairy plays in our lives.
Lely North America is proud to welcome Paul Peetz to our team. Recently named the Milking Technology Manager, Peetz brings more than 20 years of experience working within the dairy industry to the Lely team.
When we look at the process of harvesting milk from automated herds, the Lely team clings to three primary themes: Quickly, Gently and Completely. Under guidance from their Lely Centers, producers can center their actions and enhance herd productivity on each theme. Let's understand what "Quickly" means.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Dairy XL development manager Preston Vincent and Dairy XL sales specialist Austin Day to learn about some of the common questions they receive about implementing milking robots in large-herd dairies throughout North America. Using their answers, we have put together a list of common myths about robotic milking and what the facts actually are. Who knows, maybe we can challenge some of your own perceptions!
Lely North America has been having a busy 2018 as we continually look for new ways to provide dairy farmers with the tools and products they need to be successful.
We believe you could be the winner of an automated milking or feeding system from Lely! The Way to Dairy Award was created to recognize the best and the brightest producers in the dairy industry and give them the best automation. The grand prize winner will be able to select between their choice of a Lely Astronaut automatic milking system or a Lely Vector automatic feeding system.
It all began in March of 1972 for Richard and Susan Avila when they established Avila Dairy Equipment, Inc. in Hanford, California. In the 46 years they have been in business, they have created an environment of providing top-notch customer service for the dairymen in their area. In an effort to continue providing their customers with the latest technology and innovation in the industry, they made the decision to partner with Lely North America and become the newest Lely Center in our Lely dealer network.
Contrary to popular belief, milking robots will work in many existing barns. If building a new barn from scratch isn't an appealing or realistic option for your operation, retrofitting the existing structure to accommodate the robots may be the answer.
