Lely - Model Vector - Automatic Feeding System
The automatic feeding system ensures that there is always enough fresh feed at the feed fence. No input is needed from you. When the feed is being pushed, the feed-height sensor detects whether more feed needs to be added. This means that you only provide feed when strictly necessary. This reduces the amount of feed waste and increases the quantity of fresh feed.
Feeding your cows yourself is a thing of the past with the Lely Vector. This saves you an average of eight hours a week. The feed kitchen concept also allows feed to be stored for several days. This means, for example, that you no longer need to spend time feeding at the weekends. The Vector takes work out of your hands, which allows you more flexibility when planning your day.
The best feed strategy for optimal milk and meat production is to provide a fresh, measured and properly mixed ration eight times a day. With the Vector, each group of animals receives the appropriate ration several times a day. You can rely on the ration measured equalling the ration fed, because the Vector loads it accurately. This means that you save time as well as feed costs and fuel.Insight into return
Feeding with the Vector means more insight into the return on your feed strategy. The Lely T4C management system shows you the average feed intake at group and individual cow level. By linking the Lely Vector to the Lely Astronaut you can measure the effects of changes to rations. This allows you to gain an insight into whether the cost of a change produces not only a higher yield but also a higher return.
