Lelys new automatic calf feeder – the Lely Calm unit – is available in two models. The system machine (SM) can be linked to the computerised management system used in the companys Astronaut robotic milking unit. This allows recording and monitoring of individual animal performance.The stand alone (SA) unit is designed to control the calf rearing process completely independently and, says Lely, can be located in any type of cow shed.In both unit types, calves are allowed access to feed 24 hours/day with the feeder being automatically cleaned at 12-hour intervals.
