Lely Cosmix

Concentrate feeder for cows that need that little bit more

The Lely Cosmix feeder provides accurate information about the additional concentrate feed and the intake of cows. Additional concentrate feeders are used to balance the ration for low and high yielding cows, or to distribute extra feed types to cows that require it. The Lely Cosmix is fully compatible with Lely’s Astronaut milking robots and is connected to Lely’s T4C management programme. It allows regular concentrate feeding parallel to the concentrates supplied in the milking robot, stimulating a stable rumen pH. Moreover, it allows you to regulate the feeding based on milking times resulting in a higher stimulation of cows to visit the robot more often.
