Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0219807A1] A system and a method for feeding animals (2), each comprising an information carrier (3), is described. The system is used for determining the individual need for feed and for establishing individual amount of feed on the basis of registering of data on the carrier (3) by using a central control unit (9). Thus there is provided a feed station (22) comprising at leas one feed hopper (19-21) and dosing means (17) controlled by the central control unit (9), and which comprises discharge means (15) discharging in a feed/drinking trough (14). In order to save construction costs and to ensure that the animal (2) is only eating when needed, the drinking trough (14) is provided in a carrousel (4) with a number of feeding spaces. The animals' (2) access occurs via one or more selection gates (8) between the resting area and a concentration area (7) around the carrousel. The selection gates are opened on the basis of data on the carrier (3) if the animal (2) is allowed to consume feed.
