Lely Astronaut Robotic Milking Systems


Innovation image

Currently, dairy cows are all treated similarly while they have individually needs that when catered to may improve milk quality and production. Lely Astronaut robotic milking system is a flexible and fully trained robot that can milk cows from preparation to post-treatment in an animal-friendly way. On conventional dairy farms production can increase up to 10-15percent by using this milking robot. The system also allows many factors to be monitored on an individual cow basis. This enables the farmer to treat the cow individually again, which can improve the cow health, result in short calving intervals and reduce feed costs.
