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.
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.
Spring is right around the corner, even though it may not feel like it yet. That means that it’s time to turn your attention to preparing your herd for the transition from winter feed.
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.
