The rise of automatic milking systems in the dairy industry has led to a new way of farming, eliminating the need to lock up cows in holding pens for hours waiting to be milked. Milking robots offer a way for cows to be cows and enjoy these five freedoms that help them to be at their best.
Production is one of the keys to a successful dairy farm and many farms have turned to automation to achieve their goals. Milking robots such as the Lely Astronaut automatic milking system and automatic feeding systems such as the Lely Vector have helped increase production by making the barn the cow’s world.
The acceptance of dairy automation across all sizes of dairy herds has catapulted in recent years and Lely North America is proud to have been a leader in that movement. In our quest to serve the dairy farmers of North America, we have now created a new award that is designed to honor the best and the brightest in the dairy industry.
Lely North America is excited to introduce Dairy Specialists, based in Evans, Colorado, as our newest Lely Center. Dairy Specialists is owned by Randy Sorensen and is proud of their exceptional team of people in sales, service and product support.
Lely's celebration of 25 years of automation continues at the World Ag Expo, the largest annual agricultural exposition of its kind, where more than 1,500 exhibitors from around the world will be encouraging the newest conversations, innovations and inventions in the industry. This year, it will take place February 13 - 15 at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California.
If high workloads and lack of routine, coupled with low production, labor or low margins are challenges on your farm, DairyWise may be the solution for you.
