The paper work is about the project that we are proposing to automate the process of cleaning the dairy farm with the press of a button. The fundamental reason as to why the concept has been chosen is the cost of the labor that is required to maintain the hygiene and the cleanliness of the cow shed. Places which are deep inside the rural belt also face the acute problem of labor shortage. The proposed model consists of a pair of guide ways which is a primary load carrying member. The rack and pinion mechanism helps in the movement of machine apparatuses along the length of the scaled down frame. Here the electric DC motor is mounted with a gear on top which drives the machine along the rack. The movement along the length of the cow shed is considered as x axis. Similarly the height of the apparatus is considered as Y axis. There are two support guide ways mounted to the bottom of the main frame machine. The brush assembly is made to move along the two guide ways with the help of a screw rod and gear drive mechanism. The screw rod set up is coupled to a controllable DC motor, where the motion of the motor can be controlled by the output of the limit switch.
