Podcast: Lely’s Chad Huyser on Automation Innovation in Dairy Farming

Jul 31, 2020

by Carlos M. Gonzalez

Chad Huyser is the regional director and North America president of Lely International. Lely was founded in the Netherlands and, for over the last 70 years, has introduced new mechanized methods to help eliminate redundant processes or labor requirements on the farm, particularly in dairy farming.
 
Lely’s latest Astronaut-5 is a milking unit that uses automation and artificial intelligence for cows to feed and milk themselves. Lely collects more than 120 data points per animal each milking, introducing a level of IoT data analytics to help farmers make smarter decisions over their supply chain.
 
Huyser shares his thoughts on automation in farming today, how COVID-19 impacted the supply chain, and how the future may look like as farmers transition to new automation techniques.
