Concentrate feeder for cows that need that little bit more
Concentrates according to requirements
By feeding according to cows’ requirements, rumen health improves and milk yield rises. The Lely Cosmix, along with the Lely Astronaut, ensures that each cow receives the portion of concentrate it needs. Cows that do not consume enough during milking, heifers and dry cows get their concentrates from the Cosmix. Thanks to the Lely Qwes cow-recognition system, the Cosmix knows precisely how much concentrate the cow is allowed to be fed at any given time.
Thanks to the software system behind the Cosmix, you never feed too much concentrate. The Cosmix is designed in such a way that even very small quantities of concentrate can be provided in the feed box. This avoids wastage of costly concentrate and prevents the formation of mould or lumps.
Clear insight into concentrate intake
To get the most out of your feed strategy, an insight into feed intake is crucial. By integrating with our Lely T4C management system, you know exactly what the concentrate intake is per cow. If you also milk with our automatic milking system, you can link the data on milking to the data on concentrate intake. This gives even more insight into the return on your concentrate.
Better rumen health, higher milk yield and efficient feeding: you get all of these with the Lely Cosmix. The concentrate feeder can be adapted to your specific barn design with adjustable side rails. The Cosmix P is equipped with an integrated protection gate. This even allows cows that are lower in the hierarchy to feed on their portion of concentrate unhindered.
