Lely North America is proud to announce the five winners chosen to receive a $1,000 scholarship to aid in their pursuit to build the future of the dairy industry.
Lely North America has been a leader in the dairy industry for more than 25 years and has a strong commitment to continue making farmers’ lives easier with innovative solutions and tailored services.

Labor challenges, cow comfort and increased milk production are all reasons dairy producers across the world are turning to automation in their barns. Carol Ryan Dumas of Capital Press writes about Heglar Creek Dairy, a 2,000-cow dairy operation, weighed their options and decided to make the investment to install Lely robotics in their new barn.
We are proud to announce Dustin Takes of Takes Dairy Farm in Iowa has been named the winner of the prestigious The Way to Dairy Award.
At Lely, we believe that the Astronaut A5 robotic milking system is the most cow and farmer-friendly milking system on the market today. To aid in the design the Astronaut A5, we carried out extended market investigation to gain knowledge about the drivers and values of farmers.
