Title: SYSTEM FOR HANDLING FEED AT A FARM
Abstract:
A feed handling system for use at a farm, the system having a feed fence having a feeding table for receiving feed, the feed fence separating an animal living area from the feed table while allowing animals present in the animal living area access to the feeding table, an automatically movable frame comprising a feed displacer arranged to perform a first feed displacing action by displacing feed that is present on the feed table in a first direction substantially parallel to the feed fence and along a part of the feed table, in particular by the frame and feed displacer moving along the feed fence in the first direction, and a control device programmed to execute the feed displacing action by controlling the feed displacer to displace feed present on the feed table along such a part of the feed table that after the feed displacing action is completed the displaced feed is at an end location in front of the feed fence where it is accessible to the animals.
