With many options available, choosing a liner can be a bit perplexing. It’s an important decision that can have a huge impact on udder health and efficiency.
On August 18, 1992, exactly 25 years ago, the first milk from the Lely Astronaut flowed into the milk tank, marking an important step in dairy automation for farms all over the world. This meant that an entire generation of dairy farmers would grow up with this form of robotic dairy milkers and all the benefits they brought. We would like to celebrate this milestone with you by offering a special anniversary promotion.
Dairy producers in Canada and the United States are seeing the value of the Lely Vector as they work to reduce feed costs and the time spent feeding cows. An automatic feeding system that ensures that there is always enough fresh feed delivered to the herd with no input from you? Sounds too good to be true, but with the Vector system, the feed-height sensor detects whether more feed needs to be added and provides feed only when strictly necessary. This reduces the amount of feed waste and increases the quantity of fresh feed.
“How would you explain the benefits of dairy automation to consumers?” If you know the answer to this, you may be interested in applying for the Future of Dairy Scholarship Program. We are proud to once again present the Future of Dairy Scholarship Program sponsored by Lely North America. In the program’s second year, five qualified students residing in the United States and/or Canada will be chosen to receive a one-year, $1,000 scholarship.
