TODAY’S PATENT- FEEDER DEVICE FOR ANIMALS
The feeder device for animals was invented by Andre Bernard, patented by the USPTO on 4th of April, 2006, bearing patent number US6715443B2.
The present invention relates generally to devices for feeding animals, and more specifically, to programmable feeding devices that periodically dispense aggregate feed material.
The programmable feeding devices are known in the art, and a variety of devices have been developed which are powered by electrical or mechanical means. However, these presently known devices have a number of disadvantages and limitations, which decrease their utility. The limitation of the prior art is that in many situations, particularly with respect to the feeding of wild animals, the location most desirable for providing the feed is so remote that someone cannot practically reach it too often to bring the animal feed thereat.
The advantages of the present invention is that the feeder device for animals can be easily carried by a person, still another advantage of the present invention is that the feeder device for animals can distribute efficiently the feed for animals in the programmable time without assistance. A further advantage of the present invention is that the feeder device for animals can be easily carried and temporarily located in different remote places most desirable for distributing the feed.
