An automatic fodder system Was developed that automatically feed the cattle food (sorghum) at a predetermined time without the need of labour . In a way, it is to control the cattle feeding activity by using a system that is generally combined with the mechanical system and electrical systems to form an automatic fodder system (AFS) instead of manually feeding. The cattle owners whom are away for a long time will have troubles about knowing the situation of the feeding cattle. Thus, this automatic cattle fodder device is very convenient, and easily monitorable. The device will consist of a gear motor, wiper motor, circular saw blade, conveyor and Microcontroller8051.The cutter is used to cut the sorghum into small pieces a to fed the cattle. This improves the animal digestion and prevents animal from rejecting any part of their food. A timer is used to control the number of cutting time at an interval of time. Plus, there is an IR sensor to sense the cattle feed. With this, the user or the owner can be away from home get benefited through useful data that are receivable through communication. Further future development may be done by including the load cell to measure the exact weight of the chaffs for the analysis purpose which is helpful for efficient cattle fodder system.
