Lely VectorData from 17 Lely Vector farms was collected between 2011 and 2013. The following results were found when comparing farms one year before feeding with the Vector and one year after:
• Average milk production increase of almost 4 lbs with the same feeds available
• Reduced labor by at least 78% on all farms
        o 43% saved 300-500 hours per year
        o 35% saved more than 500 hours per year
• Farm savings of 970-1,530 gallons of diesel per year by eliminating need for tractor and      TMR mixer
• Herd behavior changed, stimulating free cow traffic
• Feeding 24 hours per day increased rumination, and in turn, improved feed efficiency
