Lely North America Announces New Dairy Award

Lely has become an innovation leader with 25 years of automation experience. The company was the first to the plate and has been hitting home runs with dairy farmers across the globe and right here in the U.S. and Canada. In fact, today there are more than 30,000 robot installations worldwide. The acceptance of dairy automation across all sizes of dairy herds has catapulted in recent years.

Now, Lely North America wants to find the best and brightest dairy farmer and present the farmer with The Way to Dairy Award.

This honor will be awarded to the dairy farmer who best demonstrates and lives by the standards of using sustainability and innovation, to create a profitable and enjoyable future in the agricultural sector, while being an animal care advocate and is involved in the dairy industry.

Interested participants can view the official rules and request an application online at www.thewaytodairyaward.com. Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2018 at 11:59:59 PM CDT. The grand prize winner will be chosen by a panel of judges and will receive their choice of either an Astronaut milking system or a Vector feeding system. “Lely wants to give the best farmer the best automation on the market, supported by their local Lely Center. Lely Centers span the U.S. and Canada from Quebec to Kentucky across the plains to California and into western Canada to serve dairy farmers across North America,” states Chad Huyser, Vice President Lely North America.
