Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR FEEDING ANIMALS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR ALIMENTER DES ANIMAUX
Abstract:
(EN) A feeding system is provided to permit sequential entry to animals, one at a time, into a feeding station that weighs the animal, and then provides or prevents access to feed based on body weight or other criteria. It exits each animal if no feed is to be provided, or after feeding for a specified period of time. The system accommodates animals housed in groups, and allows individual animals to be fed precisely with minimal labour input. Feed consumption by individual animals is limited by the amount of time they remain in the feeding area of the station and the amount of feed provided to them. The system provides for the ongoing collection of data about the animals growth and controls and monitors feed intake and body weight.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'alimentation destiné à permettre l'entrée successive à des animaux, un à la fois, dans un poste d'alimentation qui pèse l'animal, puis accorde ou empêche l'accès à la nourriture sur la base du poids corporel ou d'autres critères. Il fait sortir chaque animal si aucune nourriture ne doit être fournie, ou après l'alimentation pendant une période de temps spécifiée. Le système s'adapte à des animaux logés dans des groupes, et permet à des animaux individuels d'être alimentés précisément avec un apport minimal de main d'œuvre. La consommation de nourriture par des animaux individuels est limitée par la durée pendant laquelle ils restent dans la zone d’alimentation du poste et par la quantité de nourriture qui leur est fournie. Le système permet le recueil continu de données concernant la croissance des animaux et commande et surveille l'apport de nourriture et le poids corporel.
