SmartFeed systems provide researchers the tools to make exciting discoveries and conduct research in areas previously deemed challenging or virtually impossible. In a recent publication of Animals, SmartFeed assisted researchers in Australia with quantifying intake and behavior associated with self-fed supplements on a long-term study involving multiple forage types, quality, and availability. The researchers found that forage type and amount affect intake and feeding behavior of a commonly used molasses-based lick block.
