I used to use a couple Surge Infarmation computer feed stalls for rolled Hi-moisture corn and supplement. They were situated inside a wall of the freestall barn with the feed room on the other side of the barn. The Harv guys were doing a PM check on the Goliath unloader. They asked me what that bumping sound was. The cows that were not allowed anymore feed for that time period would keep beating their head against the feeder trying to make part of a kernel fall down so they could eat it. Some cows were very persistent! I even bolted a couple of short dull prongs where the cow's head would bump to try and stop them from doing this. Apparently part of a kernel of corn was worth a little extra pain.

And there’s farmer Brown lugging pails of feed twice a day, seven days a week. Yeah, whose the dummy in that cartoon?

Funny story about smart cows....
I grew up on a dairy farm and we always fed our cows grain as they were being milked. To fed them the grain, you simply pulled a rope that was behind the cow and the other end of the rope was attached to a ratcheting auger that was in front of the cow. The length of rope was directly over each cow and the cows could see the rope move whenever they were being fed. (The high-producing cows usually got an extra pull) Out of the 70 or so cows, 4- 5 of them got to be smart enough to reach up with their mouth and pull on the rope to give themselves more grain. It was actually quite funny to watch and made you wonder exactly what was going through their head when they figured out that they got rewarded by simply pulling on the rope with their mouth.

I used to work for a company that sold the equipment that fed cows in the parlor among other things. Got called out on an emergency repair and when we got there there was a long line of cows outside the parlor waiting to be milked. Apparently a cow that gets grain everyday in the parlor doesn't want to leave until she gets her grain. We had to work in the area above the parlor and feed room on the ceiling joists. The owner kept yelling up asking about our progress. Unfortunately my partner and I had never seen this system before as we were a silo unloader repair crew. It consisted of a heavy conduit with a spring inside for auger flitting. It was bound up tight so we pulled the drive head which allowed about eight foot of spring under pressure to shoot out of the tube. We were quite surprised but uninjured. We managed to extract the rest of the spring along with the high moisture corn that had it bound up. Reinstalled the spring and to ours and the owners relief it worked.

Reminds me of some chickens I saw long ago at OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry)
They had to peck a paddle 8 times then push down on a lever 5 times with their foot to get a few kernals of corn to drop down so they could eat it. I don't remember the exact numbers but that was the gist of it.
They figured it out and spent their days pecking and stepping.
They did not look underfed.

I vaguely remember at the Ft Worth Stock Show as a kid.

A chicken in a glass box, you put a quarter in, a light would go on, the chicken did some kind of pecking trick and feed would come down for it.

Can't remember exactly what it did, but it was pretty impressive!

But the Denver zoo had the best one, a quarter got you a hand full of fish food out of a gumball machine, you threw the fish food in the pond and when the fish came up for the food the pelican ate the fish! I spent like two bucks
