Micro machines are used in feedlots to add a variety of ingredients to rations.  The most common ingredients added are things which are present in the ration in very small quantities including vitamins, antibiotics, and other medicated feed additives. The micro machine weighs the small quantities needed for each batch and transfers them to the mixer.
