Virtual Fence Workshop
July 13 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm MDT
VF is an emerging technology that contains livestock with a reduced need for physical fences. Ranchers create virtual boundaries on digital maps, like Google Maps, that GPS collars detect. The collars then use sound and mild electric stimulus to contain livestock. This workshop will explore VF’s practicality, effectiveness, and applications for new and improved herd and range management strategies for large and small ruminants.
