T0 all whom 'it may concern.'

Be it known that I, NICHOLAS M. DoTY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Alcester, in the county of Union and State of South Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Automatic Hog Oilers and Disinfectants, of which ythe following is a specification.

This invention relates to an automatic oiling and disinfecting machine for hogs.

The primary object of this invention is to provide a device of this character which is simple and economical in construction and highly efiicient in operation.

With the foregoingv and other objects vin view that will appear as the nature ofthe invention is better understood the same consists in the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts illustrated in the drawings and more particularly pointed out in the appended claim. In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a front elevation, partly in section, of an oiling and disinfecting machine for hogs, and embodying my improvements.

Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse section taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1 with the parts shown on an enlarged scale, and Fig. 3 is a central longitudinal *section of the oil discharging valve and associated parts.

Referring to the drawings for a more particular description of the invention and which drawings are for illustrative purposes only and are therefore not drawn to scale, the device comprises the oiling or disinfecting cylinder 1, consisting of the disk shaped end walls or members 2 connected together by the cross bars 3 and the flexible body 4 of cloth or other absorbent material.

The cylinder 1 above mentioned is revolubly mounted on .the lower horizontal discharge pipes 5, connected at their outer ends to the lower ends of the ,vertical depending leg portions 6 of the feed pipes 7 ,the upper horizontal portions, as 8, of which, are con-- nected through the medium of the coupling 9 and pipe 10 with the bottom of the supply tank or reservoir 11 for the oil or disin-4 fectant. The depending leg portions 6 of the feed or conducting pipes 7 are slidably mounted in the longitudinal grooves 12 formed in the inner faces of t e vertical members 13 of the upright frame A, the up# Specication of Letters Patent.

per ends of which are connected together by the top cross b-ar 14.

The cylinder 1 is yieldably and adjustably supported in position in the frame A by the coil springs 15 connected at their lower ends to the upper horizontal members 8 of the feed pipes 7 and at their upper ends 'to the chains 16 engaged with the supporting hooks 17 secured to and depending from the top cross bar 14 of said frame. The chains 16 are for the purpose of adjusting the position of the oiling cylinder with relation to the height of the hogs.

The inner ends of the discharge pipes 5 .are connected togetherA ,bythe cylindrical coupling sleeve 18 provided at one end with a depending discharge nozzle 19 normally closed by the valve 20 preferably formed at one end of the bar 21 and pivoted near said end as at 22, betweenthe lugs or brackets 23, depending from and preferably cast integral with the oil cylinder 18. The opposite or free end of the bar 21 extended beyond the adjacent end of the coupling sleeve 18 and is guided in the vertical movement by the guides 23 depending from the latter.

The valve 2O is normally held closed by the spring 24 secured atl one end, as at 25, to the bottom of the oil cylinder 18 with its oppo site or free end bearing against the bar 21.

The free end of the bar 21 is equipped with a roller 26, which works against the edge of a double cam 27 carried by and rotatable with the cylinder 1, said cam being formed at opposite sides with the inwardly curved or depressed portions 28, the purpose of which will presently appear. A needle valve 29 screws into the coupling sleeve 18 and may be adjusted to regulate the amount of oil or disinfectant liberated each time the valve 20 is depressed.

In practice, as the hog passes under the cylinder 1, the latter is rotated which in turn rotates the cam 27 whereby the valve 2O islopened twice foreach revolution of the cylinder by the action of the inwardly curved or depressed portions 28 of the cam on the roller 26, .againstv the` action of the spring 24, the tendency of which is to keep the. valve closed.

The oil or disinfectant which dischargesl portion of the cylinder l which swabs or applies the same to the back-of the hog` over practically its :sentirei length.Y 'i

The inachine is placed in a gate or doorway properly disposed in relation to the ground O1" H001" in ,glider ,that 'the fhegsan readily pass under the rotating cylinder.

A plate is arrangedibetween @theydepending leg portions of the feed or conducting :pipes ,7 which I.prevents the zhogs from jumping over the cylinder' l and upon which may be displayed Vsuitable advertising matter.
