Dairy smarter. Learn how from the experts!

Lely Astronaut automatic milking unit

Lely, the world leader in robotic milking systems, will host "Robotic milking 101," an online discussion with dairy producers who are currently using the technology in an online Webinar Tuesday, May 28, at noon (CST). The 60-minute Webinar will discuss a new approach to farm management with robotic milking versus conventional milking.

"We invite those who are interested in robotic milking, or have questions regarding automatic milking, to join us for an online discussion to gain insights from those who have experienced it firsthand," says Peter Langebeeke, president of Lely North America. "As ‘innovators in agriculture,' Lely is proud to have offered solutions to producers for 20 years and considers continued innovation key to the future. This Webinar will serve as an excellent opportunity to learn how by embracing the future now, you can put your dairy in a position to succeed, year after year."

"Robotic Milking 101" is the first in a series of three Webinars Lely has scheduled for 2013 and will serve as an introduction to automation, including the basics of preparation and startup. Later this year, Lely will host another Webinar focusing on the economics of robotic milking, followed by a third, which will include a panel of producers who will discuss the do's and don'ts of robotic milking, as they share their experiences.
The Webinar will take place Tuesday, May 28, at noon (CST) online and is free to attend. Questions will be welcomed throughout the Webinar as well as at the end of the presentation. A recording of the Webinar will be available after May 28 by visiting www.lelylife.com/robotic-milking-webinar .
