AbstractThe low-cost, practical, easy-to-build, low-maintenance mechanical animal-powered cow spacer described spaces animals that are moving single file through a chute. The spacer unit can be used successfully in conjunction with an automatic electronic weighing/identification system for obtaining accurate daily weight data on individual animals.
