JOHN MOORE, OF WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA.

GALE-FEEDER.

Application filed November 18, 1912.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, JOHN Moons, of the city of Winnipeg, in the Province of Manitoba, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Calf-Feeders, of which the following is the specification.

The invention relates to an improvement in calf feeders and the object of the inven tion is to provide an inexpensivddurable and efficient device whereby one can readily feed young animals a particular feature being that the device is constructed to present a form very similar to the shape of an udder and teat so that natural conditions are closely approached. i

With the above objects in view the invention consists essentially in a specially designed connecting piece, a feed tube carried by the connecting piece, a nipple mounted on the connecting piece and a plurality of clamping members securing the nipple to .the connecting piece, the parts being arranged and constructed as hereinafter more particularly described. i

Figure l is a side view of the complete device as applied on a can. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same. Fig. 8 isan enlarged detailed vertical sectional view centrally through the device and a portion of the ppper part of the can. Fig. 4 is a front view of a number of the devices as they appear in a second embodiment offrny invention. Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view through the supporting boards, the section being taken in the planedenoted by the line Z- -Z Fig; 4 and looking in the direction indicated by the arrow Z) Fig. 6 is a vertical sectional view through the device the section being taken in the plane denoted by the a line Y-Y Fi g. 4: certain parts being shown in side elev ation. Fig. 7 is an enlarged detailed vertical sectional view centrally through the nipple, the connecting piece and clamping members as they appear in the second embodiment of the invention. Fig. 8 is a horizontal sectional view through the connecting piece the section being taken in the plane denoted by the line X-X Fig. 7. Fig. 9 is side view of the connecting piece.

In the drawings like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure. Referring now particularly to Figs. 1, 2, 3 and 9 of the drawings 1 represents a can or receptacle for the re- .Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. 9,1915. Serial No. 731,958.

ception of milk or other such liquid which can 1s shown in the present instance with a conical top 2 provided with an exteriorly threaded neck 3. The can is supplied with a handle it.

5 represents my connecting piece which has the body portion 6 thereof fitted with a circiunferentially directed groove 7 forming a beading 8 at the top and a. shoulder 9 at the bottom the purpose of which will be later explained. The ,body portion is also supplied with an extending interiorly threaded flange 10 and an extending exteriorly threadedtube 11 there being a continuous duct 12 passing through the tube and body portion. The thread on the flange is arranged so that the connecting piece can be screwed onto the neckand the thread on the tube is supplied to receive the threaded end of the feed pipe'lB. Y

it represents a rubber or such like flexible nipple having the upper end thereof supplied with a feed opening 15 and the lower end thereof slipped over the connecting piece, the base of the nipple resting in the groove "7 between the beading S and the shoulder 9. i

16 represents a holder for the can. The holder is formed from the following parts: 17 represents a base formed from two sections 18 and 19 connected by hinges 20. 21 is the top of the holder formed from two strips 22 and 23 arranged to fit around the top of the can l. i i

The top and baseare connected by upright b t wcan 1 i '24 and 25 are similar spherical. segments forming clamping members provided each with out-turned flanges 26 permanently secured by screws 27 or such like to the strips 22 and 23 or the top of the holder. These members are each fitted with inturned flanges 28 and 28' arranged to receive the connecting piece and the flanges are supplied with ribs 29 and 29 adapted to jam the base of the nipple into the groove between the beading and the shoulder.

The strips forming the top piece carry any suitable means whereby they can be fastened together, that shown comprising books 30 and eyes 81.

When the device above described is to be used the holder is opened by undoing the hooks and the can is inserted within the holder. The holder is then closed and to the connecting piece by the clamping members. The calf will quickly take to the feeder as the nipple and clamping members conform very closely to the actual shape of a cows udder and teat.

In the remaining figures of the drawings I have showna second embodiment of the invention wherein the holder has been dispensed with and the device fitted up so as to feed a number of animals. The individual can is dispensed with and a common can which feeds all the nipples is supplied.

In Figs. 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the drawings I have retained the same'reference characters on the parts which are the same as those described in Figs. 1,2, 3 and 9. The coupling piece, feed tube, clamping members and nipple are all the same. The holder has been entirely dispensed with and in its place I have supplied the following parts:

32 and 33 represent two boards carried bythe end pieces or standardsBt and 35 and the standard 34 carries a platform 36 which supports a common feed can 37. A pipe 38 leads from the can to the rear of the boardswhich pipe is supplied with a controlling valve 38.. The top board 33 is provided with a plurality of grooves 39 having V-shaped ends which grooves receive slidably plates 40 having their forward faces in the same plane as the boards and their lower edges, abuttingthe upper edge of the lower board. I I a 1 The plates carry each a clamping member 24 while the board'32 carries a number of the clamping members 25, the clamping members carried. by the plates and board being arranged so that they close together in pairs in each instance when the plates are closed n.

Any suitable means can be employed for" fastening the plates in their inner positions,

hooks and eyes being shown in the'drawmgs. I A plurality of feed tubes 13 pass from the common'feed pipe 38 and pass between the boards the outer ends of the tubes being fitted with connecting pieces 5 carrying the nipples 14.

When the device above described is set up or assembled and the plates 40 are locked by the hooks and eyes, the top clamping members jam down on the lower clamping members and catch the nipple in the same manner as is done where the holder is employed.

I have only shown the device as arranged to feed four animals but ,it will be understood that the number could be increased indefinitely to feed any number of calves.

In actual practice it would no doubt be unnecessary to provide a special stand to carry the clamping plates as they could be suitably arranged on a manger or in any other desirable location.

What I claim as my invention is In combination, a feed pipe, a connecting piece having a depending threaded central tube, adapted to be connected to said feed pipe, said connecting piece being provided with a central duct and having a circumfer entially directed groove formed on the outer side thereof and a nipple fitted on the con necting piece, said nipple having a depending flange, spherical clamping members have mg inturned segmental flanges, said segmental flanges engageable with the first mentioned flanges and ribson said segmental flanges, and outturned apertured flz mgesv on said clamping members.

Signed at WVinnipeg, this 20th day of August'1912.

In the presence of- S. ROXBURGH, P. FOSTER.
