NAPOLEON COBB, OF PENNEBOG, MICHIGAN.

FEED-BOX.

$PECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 513,557, dated January 30, 1894.

Application filed July 28, 1893. Serial No. 481,726. (No model.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, NAPOLEON COBB,a citizen of the United States, residing at Pennebog, county of Huron, State of Michigan, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Feed-Boxes; and I declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.

My invention relates to stock feed boxes, and has for its object a simple and convenient means to feed hay, grain and roots to cattle and sheep from the same box, in such manner as to prevent any wasting or loss of food, preventing the strong from robbing the Weak, and also preventingin case of sheep,the seeds or leaves from mixing with the wool around the head or neck, all as is more especially set forth and claimed in the annexed specification and accompanying drawings.

In the drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective view of the box,with a portion broken away, showing the internal construction. Flg. 2 is a cross section of Fig. 1 on the line a:0a, showing the internal construction and mode of operation.

In the drawings, A A represent two sides of my improved feed box, and which as shown are arranged to show a box wider in cross section at the top and narrowing as it descends. These sides are pierced with holes a, ma, the purpose of which will hereinafter appear.

B B B represent standards or legs upon which the whole is supported.

0 O are side boards attached to the legs B B, and also having holes 0 c c.

The casings A A and casings G O are brought together at an angle at c o, and which as shown are made comparatively tight at such angle.

To the upper edges of the casings O O are hinged longitudinal doors, D D, one of Which, D, is shown open, and the opposite one, D, is shown closed. It will be noticed that the legs B B approach, and are joined at the top, making at the floor a triangle.

To the under side of the legs 13 B are attached two boards, E E, which meet at their upper edges, forming the inner sides of the feed boxes.

' Connecting the lower edges of the casings O O and the boards E E are bottom boards F F. The construction therefore would afford between the legs 13 B long troughs or pockets, and, as the apex is closed by a running board G, access to the pockets is obtained by means of the longitudinal doors D D. The ends are closed off by means of doors, H H, out in the appropriate form. All of these doors are fastened by hasps or any other appropriate means, as shown at K K.

If desired, partitions may be inserted in the longitudinal troughs between the casings O O and the boards E E, as shown in Fig. 1. These partitions can rise nearly to the top of those troughs, and they thus afford feed receptacles for each animal, in which substantially an equal quantity of grain or roots can be placed, and which prevents the animal from encroaching upon the feed furnished to its neighbor.

The operation of my invention is as follows: The end doors, or either of them, being opened, and the longitudinal side doors D D being opened, the operator can deposit feed in the troughs to any desired extent, it being intended to distribute it practically equally throughout the receptacle. Upon closing the longitudinal doors D D, the box can be filled with hay, and, if desired, a cover be placed over the whole; or, if it be high enough to prevent access over the edges of the casings A A, this will be found to be unnecessary. As the feed holes a a a and c c c are arranged respectively in a vertical line, each animal has access to its proper quantity of grain or roots, and also to the hay box, without being interfered with by any other; and it is obviously impossible for it to waste any quantity of either, or to mix seeds or leaves with the wool of the neck, in case sheep are fed by its means.

Itis obvious that considerable departure could be made in form, but without departing from the spirit of my invention.

What I claim is 1. In a combined hay and feed rack, the combination of two receptacles with openings into each receptacle permitting access by the animal thereto, a longitudinal door opening into the upper receptacle andupermitting access to the lower receptacle or receptacles, and which when closed forms the side of the upper receptacle, substantially as described.

2. In a combined hay and feed rack, the combination of two receptacles with openings into each receptacle permitting access by the animal thereto, a longitudinal door opening into the upper receptacle and permitting access to the lower receptacle or receptacles, and which when closed forms the side of the upper receptacle, and a running board above the lower receptacles and against which said door impinges on closing, substantially as described.

3. In a combined hay and feed rack, the combination of two receptacles with openings NAPOLEON COBB.
