THERE IS LITTLE DATA CONCERNING WATER CONSUMPTION BY INDIVIDUAL FARM ANIMALS. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROJECT ARE TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A PROTOTYPE WATERING SYSTEM WHICH CAN MEASURE AND RECORD INDIVIDUAL WATER CONSUMPTION IN GROUP-FED ANIMALS. A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE WATERER WILL BE ADAPTED OR A NEW WATERER DEVELOPED FOR THE SYSTEM TO PROVIDETHE NEEDED ACCURACY, FILL RATE AND TEMPERATURE CONTROL MECHANISM. VOLUME METERS WILL BE STUDIED AND ADAPTED TO THE SYSTEM. COMPUTER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND INTERFACE SYSTEM W WILL BE DEVELOPED TO MEASURE, RECORD AND TRANSFER DATA FOR STORAGE. A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND A PRELIMINARY TEST DONE. A WATERING SYSTEM WILL HAVE APPLICATION IN ANIMAL RESEARCH AND PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY FOR RESEARCH IN INDIVIDUAL ANIMAL WATER CONSUMPTION THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE AT THE PRESENT TIME.
