For dairy producers, cow comfort is key to herd productivity, but also to an environment of health and well-being, which is something dairy farmers across the U.S. and Canada take very seriously.
Mark Rose, Lely Farm Management Support (FMS) advisor and Robyn Walsh, FMS advisor at Grand River Robotics in Fergus, Ontario discuss the benefits of the Lely Luna cow brush and cow comfort. Watch now.
Suitable for short–haired cows older than one year, the Lely Luna design enables the brush to be driven by touch, which then rotates in the opposite direction once the cow pushes against it. This ensures maximum comfort for the cow and a longer brush lifetime. A minimum of moving parts means low maintenance. The Lely Luna cow brush has spirally positioned bristles of variable thickness for maximum comfort.
Once installed, it’s important to regularly check the Lely Luna cow brush to ensure an optimal lifetime.
A weekly check is recommended:
- Make sure the brush is clean and free of damage
- When the diameter of the brush is less than 30 cm (12 inches), it should be replaced
- Make sure ventilation openings in the motor housing are clear and clean
- Examine the gearbox for oil leaks
The Lely Luna cow brush is delivered as one part and can easily be installed on a post or against the wall.
