  • January 2017: One of the divisions of GSI (AGCO Corporation), namely Cumberland Poultry, announced the launch of an advanced automated feeding technology for poultry birds. Named as “HiLoÔ Plus Pan Feeder”, the feeder comes with a two-stage pan performance inside one complete feeder.

  • June 2018: DeLaval announced that it has introduced DeLaval OptiDuoÔ, which is a robotic feed pusher, allowing to remix feed before moving it onto the feeding table of cows.

Introduction to Automatic Feeding Machines

Feeding machines are used as a feeder to feed or load machines during the process of manufacturing of a product. Feeding machines are also used to feed animals. With the need for reducing variable cost and human errors, automation of machines is happening all over the world in a variety of industries. Automatic feeding machines divide the feed in equal proportions with the right amount of ingredients and save time as well as money of farmers.

Market Size and Forecast

The automatic feeding machines market is anticipated to record a significant CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. Automatic feeding machine is widely used for feeding animals. Increasing demand for meat and dairy products, backed by the rising consumption of these products around the world, is raising the need amongst the farmers to tame a greater number of animals, so as to meet the rising demand. As automatic feeding machines benefit animal husbandry processes by enhancing process efficiency and reduced operational costs, there is an increasing demand for automatic feeding machines amongst the animal husbandry farms, which is anticipated to contribute significantly towards the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing need amongst manufacturers across several industry verticals for automated processes of their production line, is also anticipated to raise the demand for automatic feeding machines, and in turn the growth of the market.

The market is segmented by application into poultry, pet, pork, aquarium, ruminants and others. The ruminants segment has the highest market share in this segment. Rising population and increasing demand for dairy products contribute to the need for automation in ruminant segment and farmers are opting for automatic feeding machines to reduce cost and increase productivity.

On the basis of function, distributor segment contributes to the maximum market share. Distributors help in distributing the food or parts with precision. Farmers are conscious about the health of their animals and they know the need for precision and providing food in adequate intervals for their development. Rail-guided feed wagon and self-propelled feeder are two types of distributors used to feed among the livestock. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

In the feeding equipment segment, individual step-feeder machine segment has the largest market share owing to equine and cow feeder machines. It is expected to gain significant market share in upcoming years also to maintain the cost-revenue ratio and proper development of animals.

Growth Driver

Rising Demand for Meat and Dairy Products

Population of the world is increasing at a significant rate and so is the demand for meat and dairy products. To meet the demand farmers are focusing more on the development of animals and for that they require an automated feeding system to keep the cost under check. This increasing demand will drive sales for automatic feeding machines in the future, which in turn is anticipated to drive the growth of the global automatic feeding machine market.

Increasing Focus on Process Accuracy and Efficiency

Companies all around the world are focusing on reducing defects and improve their process accuracy. For this purpose, it is necessary to reduce human errors as much as possible. Automation provides them precision and accuracy. In current times, demand for automation is increasing day by day and it will boost the growth of automation in feeding machine sector as well.

Increasing Population of Livestock

Not only the population of human beings is increasing but the population of livestock is also increasing. With the increase in population it becomes very difficult to manage and monitor the herd manually. Therefore, the demand for automatic feeding machines will thrive as it helps in feeding them systematically and also helps in tracking and monitoring them.


High Setup Cost

Automatic feeding machines require a lot of capital to purchase and setup. High initial investment sometimes become a hindrance for farmers with low income. In order to fulfil huge demand of dairy and poultry products, famers need a better system to manage and monitor livestock, but limitation of capital does not allow them to invest in automatic feeding machines. Most of the small companies also do not have capital to invest in these machines.

Requirement of Skill and Knowledge to Operate

Automatic feeding machines requires skills and knowledge in order to be used in an efficient way. They need highly efficient management tools for working in an uninterrupted manner. People who have these skills are very less and to educate people about the usage of these machines is a major challenge which needs to be tackled.
