The Lely Vector ensures correct rations are fed to cows consistently and on time, allowing farmers to achieve efficient and high-grade milk production. Feed is automatically pushed up at the feed bunk and is measured to determine if more feed is needed for each individual feed group. The amount of feed distributed is automatically adjusted based on consumption at the group level. It is also possible to program precise rations for both large groups and groups as small as ten cows and monitor the feed program with a variety of reports. Feed is stored in the feed kitchen and, can be stored for approximately three-days. The kitchen is designed with flexibility to feed many types of forage, concentrates and minerals alike. The fully automated process enables farmers to define and adjust their feeding strategy resulting in improved animal health, improved feed efficiency and optimal milk production.
