Need advice from farmers-- would you want an automated animal feeder


I am making an automated system for feeding farm animals as a part of an engineering class. It would automate feeding animals. It would optimize to serve the correct amount of food, cutting food waste.

It would also give you insight into how much each individual animal is eating using RFID tags specific to that animal. This would be a fully autonomous system that you could set up and then not touch for at least 1 year. All of the data about how much each animal is eating could be viewed online, and you could receive a text message alert if one animal is displaying weird eating patterns.

Check out the details of our project proposal here if you are interested:

Is this something you guys would be interested in buying? If so, how much would you expect to pay for something like this?

Thanks you, your input helps a lot.
