Pushing boundaries in livestock farming

Instantly adaptable virtual fencing


The days of labour and resource-intensive physical fencing will soon be over. Moving and fencing livestock is no longer dependent on where you can get a fence line. eShepherd allows you to monitor, move and contain livestock anywhere on your farm, breaking down those difficult to fence paddocks into smaller grazing cells to run a more efficient and thriving pasture-based system.

We are currently scaling up eShepherd operations across Australia. Register your property today and we will be in touch when eShepherd is ready for your property.

eShepherd™ is a solar powered, GPS enabled, livestock neckband that enables you to remotely track, manage, fence and move your livestock around your farm using virtual boundaries or fences.
