AEC_17_24_Group effects on Virtual Fencing
Behavioural, temperature and GPS data collected for project AEC 17/24 which looked at the effect of flock dynamics and determine what proportion of sheep in a flock would be required to be collared without affecting the efficacy of the virtual fence.

DAWR: Cost-effective weed management using targeted sheep grazing technology
There is increasing emphasis and need for natural resource management through the use of more diverse, non-herbicide, weed management options. Livestock grazing management, such as intensive grazing, is a long-proven method for controlling major weeds, as well as having additional benefits in reducing over-grazing areas that may be vulnerable to we... moreed incursions, or by excluding livestock at times where the spread of a particular weed may be promoted by livestock. By developing virtual fencings use for sheep and demonstrating the potential weed management application it complements the current commercial development of the technology for cattle management, and significantly increases the potential area of Australia that can benefit from the technology. Targeted grazing management is a long proven tool for reducing the impact of common established weeds on agricultural production and ecosystems by damaging plants and/or reducing seed set. Virtual fencing has the potential to greatly improve the effectiveness and potential scope of application of targeted grazing management. The technology has the potential to target a wide range of weeds including weeds of national significance. less
