Are you the "feed pusher" at your dairy? Do you have to sit in a skid steer loader twice a day to complete the job? Or is it an after-school chore for your kids, involving a broom or shovel? Are their schedules, such as basketball, wrestling, choir practice or social activitities distracting them from consistently pushing feed up to the cows? What are your cows eating at 2 a.m.?
Technology is all around us, including in dairy barns. With all the advancements in technology, it is increasingly common to find at least one piece of robotic dairy equipment in dairies all over the world.
Lely North America is excited to introduce Nebraska Dairy Systems to our Lely Center dealer network! Nebraska Dairy Systems is a full-service dairy supply company servicing producers in Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota and Iowa from two strategically located offices in Norfolk, NE and Ravenna, NE. Owned by Rick Meysenburg, Nebraska Dairy Systems started their “Lely Life” in November 2015 as a satellite Lely Center in cooperation with Gorters Clay and Dairy based in Pipestone, Minnesota.
Winter can be challenging for any livestock operation and without proper attention, it can lead to problems. Dairies with robotic milking systems are no exception.
Two new faces can be found around Lely North America these days. Brice Loonan and Josh Padellford have joined the Technical Service and Support (TSS) team. Both serve as the first line of defense for installation, troubleshooting, repairs and maintenance for Lely products. Loonan focuses on supporting milking and cooling products while Padellford concentrates on feeding and barn products.
