Abstract
While the initial application will be for cattle, the systems developed in this project will be applicable to feeders used for other domestic species including sheep, goats, and domestic hogs. In addition, the systems developed could be used to control gates or other access for animals or objects that are tagged with radio frequency identification systems. This project is designed to increase the economic benefits of specific husbandry practices, improve the competitiveness of U.S. livestock production, enhance the competitiveness of a small, rural employer, and develop a leading technology that is likely to become an industry standard. Quality of life in rural Oklahoma will be enhanced if 3C Cattle Feeders, Inc. can employ more people. 3C Cattle Feeders currently has 12 employees in Mill Creek, Oklahoma.
