I envision a system like this for live stock. ..where i can have chickens. 150 miles north of here/ and come back

on the weekends to check on the chickens goats. And possibly ducks. and i would use a camera should there be a problem and have to drive up there. Opposed to hireing somebody/ miami to bervard, theres a lot of good land up there..


and id like to buy a hobby farm. that would have some of these concepts built in. but you this is in its infacny with pioneers like you. however ?? the cross over to live stock would be something else./

Well the only analysis I could say is that I have it running currently. It can hold over a gallon jug filled with fish food which will last weeks. I do go out and check my system every day to make sure things Are running correctly and it has been working like a champ. I can also control the rotations of the auger and frequency, so if I need more food I can adjust it, if I need lass food I can adjust that too. I have it set to run on a time 3 times a day.

but just great fantastic work.

It reminds of the arcades on the jersey shore. Where there would be a bed of quarters. And the next quarter You dump with a wall pushing behind it would push other quarters over the edge. That might be an alternative to the Auger drill concept. where a wall could push some food over the edge. the floor would be angled, 20 degrees upward with the wall pushing behind, and the food would water fall down. Might i dont know??? right might reduce moving parts, opposed to drill.

have you ran any analysis of??? how long you can feed X fish ///with out re///fills or refilling  food./ that would be my next step./ be great to walk away from the fish for a day or two or even know what i mean./ this could even be done for livestock... Another kissing cousin experiment would be a camera to walk way on vacation see how fish are doing also for live stock.
