Lely shows off Tedder, mower and baler updates
Switzerland was the venue where family-owned Dutch firm Lely Welger recently invited buyers from around the world to its bi-annual demonstration of the latest in agricultural technology
more than 30 Lely Welger Irish dealers travelled to Switzerland in June to Lely's bi-annual field day.
It's a working event where the Dutch firm demonstrates its grass products mainly to Lely Welger dealers from around the world.
In total, some 900 people from 30 countries attended the firm's demonstration.
Lely is still a family-owned business and current CEO of the Lely group is Alexander van der Lely.
The firm's products can be split into two categories, though both serve agriculture and dairy farmers in particular.
The agricultural machinery division is what we are probably most familiar with here in Ireland.
The 'robotic' division is responsible for innovations such as the Lely Astronaut milking machine, in addition to several other high-tech farming aids.
