Self-feeders have been used with good results in feeding swine, cattle and poultry. The self-feeder has been particularly popular with feeders during the fattening period, since it usually results in the consumption of more feed and thus more rapid and economical gains than jn the case of hand-fed animals. The saving of labor is also an item, under some conditions, which justifies the use of self-feeders.
