Lely Astronaut A5

Introducing a new milestone in milking: the Lely Astronaut A5. The 25 years since we invented automatic milking have been a challenging journey. From 1992 until now, we have carefully studied cows and listened to our customers. We have retained proven practices, whilst tweaking our system to ensure it is fit for the future. The combination of automatic milking principles and our focus on reliability, ease of use, and cost efficiency has resulted in the most cow and farmer-friendly milking system.
