SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS

The principle of this device is to allow the animal to have access or not to the food placed in the hopper by scheduling periods of lifting and lowering. The system also allows according to the research work a total restriction of the power supply over a programmed period of time.

At each ascent of the feeder, a weighing is performed, giving the consumption of the animal in grams, with an accuracy of 0.1 g.
