Feeding of Animals has never been made simpler than this way, a developed to feed flocks of sheep, cattle, or goat, etc. with tremendous speed. It is another answer to the major Agricultural activity which is animal feeding, if a flock of animals was to be feed by delivery their hays to them with any manual method, it can take the workers several hours to feed all the animals and such activity will require a good number of workers. But when a such as this one is involved, then it can become a very simple task that only two persons can do effectively within one hour.
A major machine manufacturer has just released the details of the newly made machine for speed feeding of the Animals in flocks, that is; when they are in a group. The machine has a big size just like some Agricultural machines, and it is called the HAY SPRAYER.
The HAY SPRAYER is the made for the purpose of spraying animal foods automatically, the has its body integrated into a truck having its spraying nozzle pointing at the directions the animals’ food will be sprayed which is also moveable.
The popular food used for the illustration was dried hays which is a favorite feed for cattle, goat, and sheet. The was able to spray the dried hay over a long distance to cover all the areas the Animals were located, moving the nozzle in a forward and backward motion makes the hays to spread across all the Animals in their location in forward and backward locations respectively. While the truck keeps moving in any driven direction to ensure proper sharing of the food to the whole animals in the farm.
It is believed that the spraying nozzle can be rotatable so that the truck will not need to be turning at a different direction to spray the hays rather the nozzle can do it. At the back of the same truck integrated with the , there is a large bucket on it and the bucket is where the hays will be loaded by another a self-loader truck.
The operational procedure is simple; load the hays into the bucket at the back of the truck and start the hay sprayer, then used the control handle to move the sprayer nozzle to any direction the Animals are to ensure all of them received their food.
Machine like this one will be of help to those that have large Animal farms with few workers, because it can be very fast in the feeding process such that; it can feed over 1000 cattle within an hour all you will need is to keep on loading the hays into the truck’s bucket and the will handle the spraying job.
This may be the answer to the stress most animal farmers face when it comes to feeding them in their large numbers. The has two models; one bearing the spraying nozzle above the truck and another having the spraying nozzle at the lower side of the truck. The two perform the same function except that the one with the spraying nozzle by the side of the truck will be used to feed the Animals standing very close to the at the locations where the other type could not be able to spray the hays.
