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
Balanced Per Cow
When a cow enters the Lely Cosmix, she is identified through her
neck or leg identification tag. Because each animal’s daily ration
is continuously calculated, the Lely Cosmix will immediately assess
if the cow should eat, and how much. No feed is wasted, because
feed is dispensed according to her eating speed.
Additional Concentrate For Dry Cows
Dry cows are often placed in a calving barn or straw pen during
the last transitional weeks before calving. These cows cannot
be fed in the robot but it is of paramount importance that they
receive sufficient concentrate. Therefore, it is ideal to install an
additional Cosmix feed station here.
Feeding minor feed quantities
with increased precision
The feed is dispensed into specially shaped feed troughs. This
allows you to feed very small portions with increased precision.
Another feature is that the dispensing position avoids the risk of
molding and cake wastage is reduced to a minimum.
