Dairy farm in Germany to install 44 Lely Astronaut milking robots

July 14, 2014 | 0 comments

Pella, IA

Germany dairy farm, Osterland Agrar GmbH in Frohburg, has commissioned Lely Industries to provide up to 44 Lely Astronaut robotic milking systems to milk its 2,500-cow herd. When the installation is completed in 2015, Osterland Agrar will be the largest robotic milking farm in the world.

More large dairy farms are making the switch to robotic milking to maximize their return on investment. Osterland Agrar made the decision to expand its robotic milking operation after its positive experience with Lely milking robots on a smaller scale. The new Lely Astronaut robotic milking systems will be installed in six new barns and allow Osterland Agrar to increase labor efficiency, while providing better individual cow management.

The Saxon region of eastern Germany has two other major robotic milking operations. One operation has 16 robots milking 1,000 cows, and another producer boasts 21 Lely Astronaut A4 milking robots, complimented with additional automated Lely barn products.

"Three of the four largest operations in the world with milking robots are located in this region," said Gunnar Althoff, head of Lely Center Saxony. "Through innovative, profitable robot technology and the customizable large dairy concept, the Lely Astronaut A4 has now become a profitable alternative to automatic or conventional carousel milking at larger companies."

More information about Lely dairy industry innovations are available on Lely's website, www.lely.com, or by calling 1-866-LELY-USA (U.S.) or 1-877-LELY-COW (Canada).
