The standard SmartFeed system is a cloud connected, automated cattle feeder typically used to measure intake and efficiency for any size and age of cattle except for young calves. The system is modular, portable, and easy to set up and use. SmartFeed can tell you the amount of feed consumed per animal per day, total time each animal spent at the feeder, time of day of each visit, and total number of visits per day. With the optional scale attachment, you can get a front-end weight of the animal with each visit to the feeder. In normal conditions, up to seven animals per SmartFeed unit can be measured, however this varies depending on the animals, the quantity of feed, and the objectives.
