Join us Thursday 15th September from 10 am at Corrimony Farm to see virtual fencing technology in practice.
Corrimony is an upland beef and sheep farm in the near Drumnadrochit in Inverness-shire. The Girvan family run a Stabiliser cow herd and a flock of ewes. The started using Nofence collars on their cows in 2020. They were one of the first commercial farms to use this technology in the UK.
Nofence are a Norwegian based company who have launched their virtual fencing collars in the last two years. These collars allow stock to be contained, controlled and monitored with no need for physical fences. Nofence will explain the fundamentals of the technology along with the seeing the collars in use on the farm.
Helen Bibby, SAC Conservationist, will talk through how this technology can be used to realise conservation objectives. The precise and real time control over the grazing animals means that this technology has a great deal of potential to improve the biodiversity of grasslands and upland habitats.
