An automated individual feeding system for dairy cows



An automated individual feeding system for dairy cows



Journal of Agricultural Engineering Research 18(4): 301-307



The University of Illinois Departments of Agricultural Engineering and Dairy Science and ARS-USDA have assisted in the development of an electronic cow feeding control system that permits controlled consumption of concentrates up to a preset amount of between 3.4 and 37.4 lb/day to each cow, depending on milk yield, The unit dispenses feed within plus or minus 9.4% of the average for all rates at a 99% level of confidence, A detailed description of the system and its advantages, is given.
